Hunting for Sharks off the Farralon Islands.

October 10th, 2011
Discovery Shark Week's Jeff Kurr was on "Derek M. Baylis" filming scientist from Monterey trying to lure previously tagged sharks to the surface for a photo opportunity both for the scientist's records and for Shark Week. Jeff was using the Phantom High speed camera on top of the Perfect Horizon which he has use numerous times while filming Great Whites in South Africa.  After two days of filming and only one shark coming up to take the decoy we went hunting for waves...

A big swell hit Mavericks and Jeff Kerr was able to shoot some great footage of the local guys hitting the waves.  Jeff was able to interview a local surfer and his thoughts of sharks in the area and how to keep a mental balance between doing something you love and a ever looming danger.  This was my first time at Mavericks and I was impressed by the size and power of the 'Worlds most deadliest wave".
