More Great White Shark Breaching Caught on Video

With more than 20 confirmed sightings of sharks breaching at Sunset Beach in Pacific Palisades last Summer, this year might be no different. A local surfer spoke to KTLA last night saying that he's spotted a dozen shark breaches last week at Will Rogers Beach, even catching a few on videotape (watch the video here). At least one of those has been confirmed as a Great White by expert Ralph Collier at the local non profit Shark Research Committee. Collier says sharks do not typically pose a threat to humans. And most surfers seem to be happy to hit the waves and share the waters with them.
