Man (In A ‘Jaws’-Like Event) Films and Survives A Near-Miss Shark Attack

JAWSChuck Patterson is clearly a survivor, as he describes:

… the day before I shot this video, i was surfing with a couple friends and 2 sharks circled us for about 15 minutes. the next day, i decided to go back out at around the same time and take my GO PRO HD HERO camera mounted on a 10 ft pole and do some exploring.

Sure enough within 5 minutes a 9 ft shark came out of no where and circled twice and slapped his tail on my board before disappearing. then a minute later a 7 ft young juvenile Great White swam circles around me for 12 minutes. It was an unreal experience that I will cherish forever…

If only the good Mr. Quint had such fortune …

    headline should read, “cameraman gets biotch slapped by prehistoric fish”.

    Speaking for those who have done incredibly stupid/ballsy things (like pulling gators out of a pond at night to move them indoors…by hand)…I can say I have balls that clink and feel self assured that this is true…

    …but this dude has balls that CLANK.

    He cherishes forever having an enormous predator circle and wonder if it should eat him?

    It’s not a “Jaws-like” event if you walk away from a shark attack unscathed, man.
