San Onofre sightings more common these days
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 12 August, 2010 : - - Chuck Patterson had spotted two sharks while out stand-up paddling surfing with a couple of friends at San Onofre beach, California. But undeterred by their presence, the 41-year-old waterman returned the following day with a waterproof camera and stroked out to see if they would show up again.
Within a matter of minutes, the Californian found himself surrounded by a pair of Great White Sharks and caught them on video swimming just feet away from him. At one point during his 15-minute encounter, the bigger of the two creatures a 9ft shark even slapped his tail on Mr Pattersons surfboard.
Mr Patterson, from Dana Point, California, said: The day before I shot this video, I was stand-up paddling surfing with a couple friends and two sharks circled us for about 15 minutes. The next day, I decided to go back out at around the same time and take my camera mounted on a 10ft pole and do some exploring.
Sure enough within five minutes a 9ft shark came out of nowhere and circled twice and slapped his tail on my board before disappearing. ...Then a minute later a 7ft young juvenile Great White swam circles around me for 12 minutes.
