This is the heart-racing moment a lady surfer almost gets swallowed by a huge humpback whale swimming closer to shore than usually. The woman was floating on her surfboard near Santa Cruz, California, when the whale surfaced with its mouth wide open trying to catch as many fish as possible. Another woman who was filming close by managed to capture the entire moment on video, and the footage will most likely keep you at the edge of your seat. There are few documented dangerous encounters between whales and humans, and it’s usually because people don’t respect the whales feeding areas.
