Paddle-boarder has encounter with great white shark

By Jaclyn Brandt. CREATED Oct 17, 2013

MANHATTAN BEACH, CA. - A paddle-boarder off the coast of California had a close encounter with a great white shark.

Mike Durand says he heard two large sharks were spotted off the coast of Manhattan Beach, so he went to check it out with a video camera.

Durand wasn't expecting the animal to take a personal interest in him.

The shark passed right under his board. Durand said he thinks it was about eight feet long.
