Mark Healey is a professional surfer and all around talented waterman. In this video, Healey had surfaced following a dive when he encountered some sharks. One of those sharks was a huge tiger shark that came so close that he had to stiff-arm it to keep it away.
“This was while filming for the GoPro video ‘Shark Riders’ a few years ago,” Mark told The Inertia. “That was the dominant female and she got a bit cranky when the food disappeared. Typically, the most dominant shark is the highest in the water column. In a feeding situation where there’s multiple sharks is when they start asserting their dominance. After the food was gone her attention turned to me, and I was the only large animal in that position. She was showing me who was boss.”
