Rumble / Shark AttacksWhat would be the best way to react when you discover there is a great white shark in the ocean just beneath your feet? Stay calm and surf with your barbecue grill, of course!

While recording a footage at sea for the upcoming single 'Stealing A Man's Grill', Jack La Padura and Brad Coder had a bone-chilling encounter with the predator from the deep blue. Watch as Jack approaches Brad with the camera, he plunges in the water, capturing the shadow of the fearsome predator on the sea bed. Incredible!

Footage was filmed on October 15th, 2013 in El Porto Beach while two men were filming a video, and had one rather unpleasant encounter with a <a href="" target="_blank">Great White Shark</a> which was lurking only three feet under their feet!

Just in case you didn't catch it the first time, Jack takes a dive several more times to film the beast. The shark follows Jack, sizing up it's meal, as he approaches Brad on his surfboard to hand him the camera.

Towards the end of the video we find out that both of these guys are fine, starring in one tense video, as Jack films the shark swimming away defeated and empty-handed from it's hunt!

Believe it or not but sharks are not all that dangerous. Our judgment of them are based on the stereotypes set by big Hollywood films like 'Jaws.' In reality they are peaceful creatures to humans and are valuable to the oceans ecosystem. Sadly the population of sharks is slowly diminishing due to overfishing and negative impacts that humans put onto the environment. Sharks need to be respected like any other animal!

Are you <a href="" target="_blank">afraid of sharks</a>? Did you feel a tingle in your spine as you watched this encounter? Share if you did!
