Neat vid. That girl was out in Santa Cruz without a wetsuit!?!?
my kinda woman!
wow you would think the swarming gulls and the bait ball would be an indication there was something big lurking.
I read the story on this, and I think they may have been trying to paddle out next to the whales? not positive? That would scary the **** out of me...
Pucker factor to the max.
I dont have any whale experience, but no way in hell would I stay put after seeing that beast surface. One flap of a fin to the face and see ya. (That girl can have a look at my whale bone anytime!)
in PR i saw a whale breach a few times while i was surfing marias. it definitely wasn't anywhere near as close as this one, but seeing something that big in the water with you is definitely pretty humbling
Look close, it is actually TWO whales.
I think Capt. JAQ is right. Definitely some serious pucker factor. It is hard to tell how close they are, distance can become very compressed on film... cool vid!
