Scariest 45 seconds ever…

…What happened to his board, i want to see what happened to it, see if there are bites on it. Why they didn't show this?

Oleksandra Kovlikova says:

most sharks are smart. They hate the taste of human flash ..only baby sharks make mistakes… Do not bleed under water or wear jewelry..then you'll be OK….

Cameron Jones says:

The shark actually didn't attack him. He just wanted to know what was going on. He had no reason to hurt the shark, it didn't do anything.

David S. says:

How did a shark even get into the pool?

john arellano says:

When your dealing with a shark you gotta have a gameplan like your fighting a bully, expect him to be aggressive at first, but when you crack that mother fucker good, he usually doesnt want to fight anymore.

ya step daddy says:

life if dead

Ray Muniz says:

Ah the shark, what a misunderstood creature. No, no, the mindless carnivorous fish had no intention of biting the man. He just wanted a cuddle.

No, seriously, there are so many idiots here on YouTube that'll weep over an attack on or the death of a fish than have any concern for a human that was only living his passion and minding his own business Absolutely disgusting.

Far as I'm concerned, if you kill one of these things out of defense to protect yourself or a love one, you're a hero in my eyes.
