Shark stalks surfer this afternoon at Boulders beach

A SHARK stalked a surfer at Boulders beach this afternoon, according to the Shark Reports Facebook site.

Andrew Gillett reported the close encounter at about 3.30pm.

There was bait fish in the water at the time and Andrew said he spotted the shark, believed to be a great white, come from below his board.

"I saw the shadow and moved, (the) shark breached and then followed me into the water's edge (as seen from a couple of guys on the headland. I didn't see this as I was paddling like crazy)," he said.

"The size was approximately eight feet, definitely a white as I saw the colouration along its flank."
