Surfer almost swallowed by whale

Barb Roettger had her camera rolling in Santa Cruz, California just as two huge humpback whales were on the hunt.

The whales were looking for the anchovies that flock to California in their millions to feed on plankton.

After the close encounter Barb says she now has a greater respect for whales and that she will be keeping a safe distance in the future..
