Shark Jumps Surfer At New Smyrna Beach

by The Editors on June 24, 2011

We’ve been calling it the shark bite capital of the world for years, but this week Orlando Sentinel photographer Jacob Langston caught more evidence of why New Smyrna Beach, Florida is still shark central.

Langston’s focus was on his subject in the foreground of his camera and didn’t see the four-foot spinner shark jumping over another surfer. . . It wasn’t until he was back in the office editing his video that he realized he had captured the awesome moment in the background.

We’ll say it for at least the tenth time: can’t believe they risk surfing with sharks for those waves?

Carefully watch the back area in between the two surfers and you will see the shark jumping over a surfer.
