Well I lived very near to New Smyrna Beach, Florida and it is known for sharks. In fact it is considered the "Shark Bite Capital of the World". The sharks do come close, there are various sharks there, and with the fools that live on this earth that need these type of adrenaline rushes I would not doubt this is a real footage. We were always hearing of someone being bite, one day someone will be the sharks dinner...foolish and should be outlawed for all the food they throw out there is only drawing more sharks to an area already a dangerous spot. Some swimmer unaware will no doubt be the tragic victim as these people are training the sharks to come look for food there. Same thing that people have done to the alligators, the the alligator gets too close to people and they must kill the alligator for something the human did, same will be true for the shark after it kills then it will be hunted and killed too. To these foolish two leggeds it's a thrill but they do not see beyond that and all that comes with this stunt of theirs.
