Incredible drone footage shows 10ft sharks swimming next to surfers


  • Screengrab via YouTube

Last Saturday, a group of surfers launched an aerial drone to grab early morning surf footage– however, to their surprise, they also managed to catch a few 10 ft sharks lurking below the surface.  

Though the video was shot at Pismo Beach, California, it's still a nice reminder that sharks are usually nearby every time we step into the water, and they're not the mindless killing machines they're often made out to be. 

For the lazy, the sharks show up at 1:20.
