Interview with stand-up paddle-boarder from white shark photo

San Diego’s CBS 8 recently interviewed Buck Elsmore, a stand-up paddle-boarder who was featured in a photo with the dorsal fin of white shark (Carcharodon carcharias). The photo was taken last fall off Encinitas’ Moonlight Beach.

Elsemore told Channel 8 that the shark swam near him at the surface for around a minute before descending back to deeper water.

      Hi Cynthia,

      I’d be more than happy to update the post with the information about who took the photo, if you want to provide me photo credit information. Also, if CBS 8 used the photo without your son’s permission, it would be worth contacting them and letting them know.
