“They say a picture is worth a thousand words,” Chris Fallows said. “Well, that picture is worth a thousand breaches. I can’t believe how high it came out, it was just perfect… a photo you dream of. This has to be the ultimate air jaws breach.”

Not even planned it couldn’t came this way as this year Air Jaws: Ultimate Breach celebrates its 20th anniversary. This special edition also comes with a very loud conservation message. “We have to do something to protect these great white sharks because they are on the brink of annihilation,” Jeff Kurr, the director of the show told TV Insider.

Aired on Sunday 9th of August, Discovery Channel’s series Shark Week will continue until 16th of August!
