Drone captures surfers’ close encounter with shark


Drone footage from America’s west coast has captured the moment a shark came a little too close for comfort with some surfers.

Coming just weeks after a surfer was filmed fighting off a shark, the footage taken from the skies above California’s Pismo Beach shows how these surfers narrowly avoided a similar scenario.

With the surfers seemingly blissfully unaware as they try to concentrate on catching a break or two, the shark’s silhouette is clearly visible in the water surrounding them.

They’ll count themselves lucky when they watch this back.
