How would you respond if you were out on your paddleboard and a shark approached you?

Danny Reid found himself in that exact situation over the weekend, as a large shark came frighteningly close to his paddle board off of the coast of Huntington Beach, California. Reid's camera was rolling, and the entire encounter was caught on film.

According to Reid, however, the shark sightings occur more often than you might think. "I see them every time I paddleboard here in Sunset, and have witnessed them swim under my board a few times," he told ABC News.

Luckily, the shark swam leisurely swam away, and both parties escaped the exchange unharmed.

"I am blessed to have witnessed these sharks in their natural environment," Reid remarked.
