Your body language matters a lot. Whether you’re in the water or communicating with a loved one, your posture offers rich nonverbal information. Slumping? You might be lacking confidence. Chest puffed up? That says something too. According to shark researcher Ocean Ramsey, the same concept applies in the presence of sharks.

In this third episode of Advanced Shark Diving with Ocean Ramsey and Juan Oliphant, learn how to exude such predator vibes, overcome your blind spots, and more.
