Marine researchers have recorded an increase in great white shark sightings off the coast of Southern California. At Padaro Beach in Carpinteria, where there’s a nesting spot for juveniles sharks within a mile of this beach, surf camp counselors have to be on a constant lookout. We take a look at what techniques they use.
