HAWAII kayak fisho Scott Haraguchi filmed this close call with a tiger shark off Ohau.
Haraguchi heard a “whooshing” sound and looked up to see a “wide brown thing on the side of the kayak”.
“I thought it was a turtle at first. Happened so fast. Didn’t realise I took my left foot out of the water to brace myself from impact and actually pushed the shark’s head off with it,” said Haraguchi.
“If you asked me to do that again, even without the shark, I don’t think I’d have that flexiblity. I actually only thought the shark rammed the kayak until I saw the video at home.”
