Personally we think anyone who free dives with Great Whites has to be just a little bit nuts. However, cameraman Andy Casagrande has done 13 Shark Week specials and lived to tell his tales — with all his limbs intact.
Andy has some great stories about his adventures with those scary fish, and some really good tips for dealing with them (if you’re as
crazy adventuresome as he is) should you ever encounter a Great White up close and personal.
Great whites are easy. They’re built like pit bulls on steroids. They can bend their fins here and there, but their way of showing they’re angry is they open and close their mouth. So they just show you the jaws sign. They swim right at you and gape.
We’ll take your word for it, Andy. Anyway, you can catch the entire interview with Entertainment Weekly here. It’s great stuff so give it a read.
