Wow this sounds scary! Imagine you are out in the ocean, paddleboarding in beautiful Orange County, California. Suddenly, helicopters are buzzing overhead, sharing a frightening announcement with everyone in the water: “Attention in the water: This is the Orange County Sheriff’s Department .… You are paddleboarding next to approximately 15 great white sharks.”
Swimmers and paddleboarders were encouraged to calmly exit the water. Orange County Deputy Brian Stockbridge told swimmers and paddleboarders to “exit the water in a calm manner. The sharks are as close as the surfline.”
Several shark sightings have been reported off the coast of Southern California in recent weeks. This isn’t surprising considering great whites are migrating back to California for the summer after spending winter off the coast of Baja California.
The sheriff’s chopper blared the warning over Capistrano Beach in Dana Point and San Onofre State Beach in neighboring San Clemente, where a non-fatal shark attack occurred just 2 weeks ago.
and then, marine experts say that California’s warm waters and healthy food supply make it a hot spot for young sharks feeding on halibut. Experts say the young sharks will move farther out to sea as they age and their diet changes.
Would you Freak out?

Luckily, sharks aren’t the flesh-hungry monsters the media makes them out to be. No sharks acted violently and everyone exited the water safely.
