Cape Town Spear-diver has a very close run in with a rather large shark


Johan Potgieter went spear diving off the coast of Cape Town with some friends. He took his GoPro down to record his fishing excursion but little did he know what he’d run into.

You can hear the moment at 0:18 second into the video where he officially kakked himself. I don’t know what was more terrifying, the encounter and fighting the white shark away or the swim to the top of the ocean away from the shark.

This is Africa.

Rumoured to have the blue-prints for Krang's TechnoDrome, stolen straight from Dimension X, he’s the type of guy who exudes so much coolness that he adds whole countries on Facebook at one time instead of just people. Always up for a party and a Tequila shot or two this is the guy who we always call first, both before and after a night out…
