Have you seen the video of a Hawaii woman swimming with the great white shark?
Kimi Werner, a national spearfishing champion and former art teacher, made headlines around the world when the video debuted on the web. Kimi had been part of an expedition right off the coast of Mexico when it happened.
Check out this video gone viral:
Apparently, the 1:30 clip has given her notoriety both in and out of the water. The freeping community inducted her into the Freeping-Spearfishing Wall of Fame, while her works of art have continued to gain recognition throughout the world.
So much so, that her art will be featured on select Vans Shoes at a Turtle Bay Resort display. The exhibit starts in November 2013 and runs until Christmas, in tandem with the Vans Triple Crown of Surfing contest holding period. After the show, the shoes will be sold with monies going directly to sustainability organizations.
