OH my f-ing God. The size of this landlord in the vid is (aka Great White) unbelievable--its a choad (wider than it is long). The divers/snorkelers swimming with this monster must of been sh#tting their suits.

It appears the shark was snacking upon a dead and floating sperm whale near Oahu, HI.

I think one of them was probably Gman. Shocked Smile

Nah, Gman would spear it from his SUP and drag that sucker to shore. Very Happy

Yes, it's important we not offend 20+ foot sharks. Everyone knows how delicate their sensibilities are. Very Happy

You know what? If somebody has the balls to touch a shark that big then everyone else should just respect that shit and shut the fuck up. Anyone that says the shark was somehow offended and hurt by a gnat touching them is too stupid to listen to.

I have a healthy respect for our shark brothers after they inhaled my personal best 50lb giant trevally spearfishing - kinda like this scene but only a dozen or so

And this is why I love and am awed by Gman. Anyone else on the planet--anyone else--would have been like "Holy shit! There were like a dozen of them! I shit my wetsuit!" Gman: "ONLY a dozen."

I'm no shark expert, and it appears that these divers aren't either. I don't see how they decided that it was safe to swim with this monster. How could they know it wouldn't turn and take a bite out of them? Balls or stupidity, maybe a combo of both? I dunno....

Anybody notice the snorkeler around the 2:00 mark near the dead whale's mouth? What's going on there? It sure looks like this person removes his/her dive knife from the sheath on his/her leg, then surface dives into the mouth to remove a tooth. That's REALLY ILLEGAL!

And I also wonder how often Ocean's sponsors' stickers peel off of her fins and drift away into the great garbage patch in the gyre...

But hey, at least these folks got some likes on social media! That's what's really important in this world... Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Twisted Evil
