WATCH: Paddleboarder has close encounter with whale at the Shore

A New Jersey paddleboarder had a very close encounter with a humpback whale this weekend at the Jersey Shore.
News 12 New Jersey viewer Brian Shea sent in a video of the whale breaching the water close to his paddleboard off the coast of Long Branch Saturday.
"I’ve been spending most of my life in the ocean for 40+ years, and this experience was right up there with the best of them,” Shea said in a Facebook post.
