The person seemed unaware of the Atlantic White Shark just feet away, near Nauset Beach, on Cape Cod in Massachusetts.
According to a video below from WCVB channel 5 Boston, the paddle boarder is Roger Freeman, and he found out about his close encounter when he returned to the beach!
The photos were taken on Sunday morning.
‘Close encounter of a peaceful kind.’ Yesterday morning Cody DeGroff (@Cdegroff10) captured these amazing photos of a white shark near a SUP just north of Nauset public Beach. The paddle boarder did not see the shark. pic.twitter.com/DQCeM3w7nf— Atlantic White Shark Conservancy (@A_WhiteShark) July 30, 2018
Wow 😯, maybe it was a good thing he didn’t see the Shark.— Jeff Vintinner🇺🇸 (@JeffVintinner) July 31, 2018
It's probably a good thing that he didn't see that great white; shock and panic then over you go.— Chris Broman (@macbroman) July 31, 2018
