SUP & Shark by Drone Video
Manhattan Beach (CA):
If you happen to be out paddling a SUP board in SoCal, keep your eyes peeled. Your chances are pretty good of seeing a shark - especially off the Manhattan Beach pier. Sightings of juvenile great white sharks began early this season, and have skyrocketed during the past several days. The presence of juvenile white sharks off Manhattan Beach is neither alarming nor abnormal. The junior apex predators feed throughout Southern California coastal waters, mostly on fish such as halibut, rays and smaller sharks.
Photographer Bo Bridges recently launched a camera-fitted drone and videotaped a reasonably large great white swimming among two SUP paddlers. It might be the first drone-captured footage of a great white shark in an area that has produced numerous underwater videos, captured via submerged GoPro cameras.
