Man was stalked by great white shark while fighting ocean pollution

A Huntington Beach man is fighting ocean pollution one stroke at a time.

"I thought that if I came out and did something extraordinary that people would look into the issue," said ocean activist Tom Jones.

44-year-old Tom Jones is paddling from Oregon to Mexico on a Polynesian stand up paddle board. The former Marine and champion martial artist wants to bring attention to the problem of plastic debris in the ocean.

Jones made a stop in Morro Bay for a quick rest this afternoon.

During his trip, he says he has been stalked by a great white shark and charged by a killer whale.
