A mako shark jumps nine consecutive backflips after getting in this clip.
Angler Alex Beck fly hooked the shark during the aptly named Flying Mako fishing tournament held in California’s Mission Bay back in 2012.
His friend was filming when the shark jumped nine times back to back to shake off the hook.
Warning: This video contains some strong language.
Beck estimates the shark was over 10 feet in length and weighed more than 800 pounds.
Speaking of 800-plus pound mako sharks, two land-base anglers caught a potential world-record mako two weeks ago on a Florida beach.The massive 805-pound shark would have qualified for the world’s record land-based mako catch, but the anglers made a costly mistake: they ate the fish.
