Crazy SUP Surfer

By  | 

Maybe this person isn’t technically a surfer.  A SUP surfer (Stand Up Paddle) took this video from his board.  We see them  paddling all the time off of Del Mar and La Jolla and it actually looks somewhat difficult and requires very good balance.  Now after watching this video I am thinking that all the SUP surfers  have a few screws lose.  This is coming from a guy who only like water when he is in the shower, but seriously.  If I were to see a shark while out on a surf board the last thing I would be thinking is,  ‘let me go back to my house, get my video camera, attach it to a paddle and go back tomorrow to see if the shark comes back.’  Who the hell thinks like this?!?  If I was in a 30 ft boat, maybe I would but it would require a bunch of fat people with me just in case the boat tipped while the shark was there. I figure they would act as better bait and I could swim to safety.   So you tell me.  Would any of you actually do what this guy did all while standing on a 10 ft surfboard?  TMTMTL@RollinSD.com The sounds are actually kind of cool and it makes you think something is going to happen.   Chucks tale of the event is below the video.

The day before I shot this video, I was SUP 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 (gopro.com) 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.

John is a badass motha fucka
