Great White Attack - Santa Barbara - 10ft of Water

A real "oh shit!" moment to say the least. He sure has a hell of a tale for the rest of his days. & recorded it!

He definitely handle himself well. Hats off to Da Brotha for still being alive.

The only thing that seems a bit "Hollywood" was the "blood of the shark still on the spear tip". It would be a pretty good trick to swim back to shore (or the boat) and have the blood of a fish stay on the spear tip.

Wow, kudos to him for keeping his cool and staying alive. Panicking in such a situation could easily prove fatal!

Re: Great White Attack - Santa Barbara - 10ft of Water

I made the mistake of watching this on YouTube. I scrolled down to the comments section to see that almost half of the comments were vilifying the diver.
