A nice relaxing day at the beach is just what's needed as the temperatures continue to soar.
However, rather than simply laying in the sun and soaking up the rays Massachusetts man Elliot Sudal prefers to wrestle sharks.
Video footage has emerged showing the 21-year-old pulling the shark out of the water and wrangling with it after it became caught on his line.

The video has now gone viral after being picked up by US network news.
Writing on his Facebook page Mr Sudal, who is thought to have caught over 100 sharks in the last eight months said: "I can't keep up with all these calls and voicemails and FB stuff.
"Let alone leave my house to get to Boston... This got so wild!"Reuse content
