A photographer captured some cool aerial footage of a young great white shark swimming near a paddleboarder in the waters of Manhattan Beach.

Bo Bridges, who has lived in Manhattan Beach for 14 years, told NBC he's seen several sharks in the past year or so. This particular shark was spotted swimming about 100 yards from the shore. When the sharks get bigger—around 9 to 10 feet—they head north.

Bridges used a camera attached to a drone to capture the footage.
