Watch this shark plow into a Florida paddle boarder

Posted By on Fri, Apr 8, 2016 at 3:29 PM


A 5-foot spinner shark knocked a paddle boarder into the ocean in Jupiter, Florida, Thursday afternoon, suggesting this particular shark hates paddle boarding.

At around noon on April 7, Port St. Lucie resident Maximo Trinidad was paddle boarding at a local surf spot near Corners Beach when he says he spotted a 4-foot to 5-foot spinner shark in front of him. 



A camera attached to the front of the board caught the shark giving Trinidad a solid leg sweep and knocking him into the water. 

According to WBPF, Trinidad called the experience, "awesome."
