Surfer warns of monster great white lurking in surf break
A SURFER has been given a great fright, after he spotted a monster great white swim past him while standing in shallow water on a Coffs Coast beach.
Brad Sharp took to social media this evening to share his close encounter with what he estimates was a '9-10 foot' white shark at Emerald Beach.
He said after catching a wave he flicked off his board and while standing in chest deep water spotted the shark.
"Cruising past right against my naughty parts was basically a submarine with teeth. He went past," Brad said.
"I did a lil wee then yelled at Harley.
"Went in, no lives or limbs lost just a little bodily fluid."
A young surfer reported his own close call at Emerald Beach on Monday after a shark reportedly struck his board.
NSW DPI has reported a host of tagged white and bull sharks being detected off beaches at Port Macquarie, Lennox Head, Crescent Head and Forster this week.
