The Five Craziest Shark Encounters Caught On GoPro, Just In Time For Shark Week

Sharks are truly awesome creatures. Awesome in the sense that, while majestic AF, they’re also terrifying in their raw power. Most of them just want to be left alone, but occasionally they want to eat a surfer or scuba diver for lunch.

This Sunday night, the Discovery Channel kicks off its annual Shark Week. Our friends over at Jukin created a compilation of the craziest shark encounters every captured on a GoPro. I started breaking out in a cold sweat watching it — Not because I’m afraid of sharks (I think they’re awesome), but because I thought for sure most of these people were an easy meal.

Just something to think about the next time you get in the water.
