A remarkable video has emerged from the US of a man having a close encounter with a great white shark.

The footage, captured off the coast of Santa Barbara, shows the 8-foot shark swimming right next to the man's paddle board.

''I was stand-up paddle boarding and I spotted this shark,'' the filmer later wrote online.

''It turned out to be an 8 foot great white who wasn't afraid of me at all! In fact, he circles back toward me, so I decided to give him his space,'' he added.
