Posted: Updated:

(CNN/KABC) - A California paddle boarder went looking for sharks and got quite the scare when he found one! Mike Durand says he heard two large sharks were spotted off the coast of Manhattan Beach, so he went to check it out with a video camera. Then, Durand saw a shark, but wasn't expecting the animal to take a personal interest in him. The shark swam right underneath Durand's board, even bumping it. The sharks are believed to be juvenile great whites, measuring between four and seven feet long.
