Giant Shark Causes A Splash For Surfer In Australia

SHARK AND SURFER
The great white shark leaps out of the water
A photographer on a beach in Australia has captured the moment when a shark soared out of the water only metres away from a surfer.
 
The once-in-a-lifetime image was taken by snapper Nathan McLaren on Tuesday afternoon at a beach just south of Newcastle, New South Wales.
 
The 33-year-old was watching surfer Daniel Caban, aged 20, on his board about 50 metres (164ft) out to sea when the massive 3.5m (11ft) predator burst out of the water.
 
Friends raced to the water’s edge to warn Daniel and fellow surfers about the danger they were in.
 
They believe the killer fish might have been feeding in the area for more than an hour while surfers rode the waves around it.
