CAUGHT ON CAMERA: Killer whales interact with paddle boarder

LAGUNA BEACH, CA -- A paddle boarder in California had an amazing close encounter with a pod of whales.

Rich German was paddling off the shore of Laguna Beach when a pod of five orcas, commonly known as killer whales, interacted with him.

One of the whales went directly under German's board twice. He said he was "too excited to be scared."

German wants to share his video of his experience in order to raise awareness for what he calls "incredible, magical creatures."
