Ocean Ramsey Swims with Great White Sharks

Xcel ambassador Ocean Ramsey is on a roll, and all it took was a GoPro ... and a great white shark.

Since GoPro released their video (above) of Ocean and a great white, she's garnered worldwide attention and the opportunity to bring her message of conservation to audiences around the world.

Ocean, a world-class diver, instructor, conservationist, and model has been swimming with sharks since she was 14 years old. With videographer and diving partner Juan Oliphant, she's working hard to change the way sharks are perceived.

"As somebody that's in the water everyday, it's sad to see [sharks] demonized," Ocean told the Huffington Post earlier this year. "People don't want to protect things that they're afraid of."
