Not only did a local surfer's board get a chunk ripped out of it, but the shark left a tooth in it.

Following the close up images of the surfboard being widely shared on Facebook, Ballina police reached out and made contact with the surfer involved.

The Department of Primary Industries is now assessing the tooth and the board to identify the shark size and species.
