Close encounter with Great White Shark : Surfer approached by shark at crowded West Beach

This is the frightening moment a three-metre Great White started trailing a surfer back to shore, just two weeks before another man lost his arm and hand in a nearby shark attack. Andy Johnston was out with a small group of surfers at West Beach near Esperance, south-east of Perth, on September 21 when people ashore spotted the dark shadow looming. Other surfers managed to clear the water onto a reef after people started to honk their car horns to warn of the approaching shark, but Mr Johnston opted to stay put. 'I'd rather try to hold my ground against it and not freak out and make a commotion,' he told the Esperance Express following his close encounter. 'If you're going to get chomped then you're going to get chomped - there's nothing you can do about it.' The photos showing just how close Mr Johnston came only emerged on Thursday - a month after his close encounter. Frits De Bruyn, who was on holiday in Western Australia at the time, was standing at a nearby lookout and managed to capture the drama. 'We were at a lookout and we saw a shadow in the water. It became evident it was shark and everyone started shouting. There was about a dozen surfers and paddle boarders in the water,' Mr De Bruyn told Daily Mail Australia. 'He followed him to shore for a bit... he was only a body-length behind him. 'The surfer went straight back out a few minutes after the shark swam away.' The un-fazed surfer said he didn't even think the shark posed a threat, but admits if things had gone badly it would have been traumatic for anyone who witnessed the attack. 'It seemed just curious and I didn't want to give it a reason to chase me so I tried to behave casually and keep an eye on it,' Andy Johnston said. 'But I didn't know it came up quite so close as I was paddling into the wave to come into the beach with the other lads. 'If you're going to say a shark is a threat every time you see one, well that's not true. 'They're doing their thing and we're doing our thing. 'I probably have a higher risk of breaking my neck on that reef than the shark causing me harm.' Two weeks after Mr Johnston's close encounter, Sean Pollard was attacked at nearby Wylie Bay, east of Esperance, on October 2. The 23-year-old lost his left forearm and his other hand at the wrist when he was mauled while surfing. Mr Pollard was dragged from the water where fellow beachgoers wrapped towels around his bleeding injuries. He was rushed to Royal Perth Hospital. Soon after, two great white sharks were caught and killed drum lines were deployed Western Australia's Department of Fisheries. The dead sharks were taken to Perth for research and Mr Pollard's surfboard was being examined by experts.

So much alarm over such a poorly misunderstood creature. Sharks are predatory creatures but humans are not part of their diet. Most humans are left alone after the shark determines this. If you are approached by a shark, simply offer it one of your limbs so it will know upon sampling you that it has made a mistake. Now calmly make your way back to shore and seek medical attention.

It was a juvenal White shark. Here in LA in the Santa Monica bay we have juvenile Whites by the hundreds in an area where they hang out for a year or more until they get big enough to eat Pinnapeds, until then its small fish.

They are about 200 yards and further out, there are plenty of White Shark encounters in the south bay here on You Tube. A lot of these videos are from stand up paddle boarders.

Once they get big enough to handle a sea lion they head out to the west side of Catalina Island and cruise up along the Channel islands looking for pinnapeds.

The smaller Whites pf 8' to 12' foot will take Se Lions. 13' to 15' foot like Seals, that are twice the size of Sea Lions. And the 2 ton plus Elephant Seals that make their home on the west side of one of the Channel islands are enjoyed by 16' and up.

Recently a pregnant 22' foot long, estimated over 5000lbs female was caught on video. These west coast Great Whites live from the Farallon islands by San Francisco, down through the Santa Barbara Channel island area past and around Los Angeles's Catalina island then all the way down to San Diego's Coronado islands. They finish up at their mating grounds at Mexico's Guadalupe island.

Can you just have a normal person narrate the video? Even if it's a normal person mimicking the AI voice, it sounds horrible. This ridiculous AI voice adds nothing to it, it doesn't make it cooler, it doesn't sound funny, it just sounds annoying and ridiculous. I would enjoy these kind of videos if they were narrated by a normal person but often when I hear that robot voice popping up AGAIN I am just not interested in watching anymore because I find it obnoxious to listen to. Please can this AI voice trend just blow over?

people like this surfer is in denial sharks are design for one thing they are not to be trusted and are highly unpredictable the waves curling kept this shark at distance and calm maybe if surfer was a little further out things would be different don't believe these animals friendly they have evolved to do one thing really good and that not coming over to let you pet them. the chance of an attack is evident and should out weigh taking a risk when you have a choice.

The fact that revenge killing still takes place in 2017 is disgusting, and a clear sign of the level of ignorance our species still operates at. A surfer gets bitten by a shark so they go out and kill a couple white sharks as if that is somehow anything but some sort of archaic eye for an eye mentality because it absolutely does nothing to make things safer. The odds on it even being the same shark are minuscule. I hope the generations that follow are smarter than we are.

What could he have done if it had attacked him, though? It's great that he's interested in the shark and respects it, but not a very bright decision. Not worth the chance of course, unless you don't value your life very much. I wouldn't think they are like other animals where you can keep them at bay , so to speak.Mind you, I was brave and dumb too once.

The only reason sharks attack people is because they look like seals. Sharks can only see black shapes, they can't see colors or in detail. The truth is if you don't panic and don't make a commotion it won't see you as a threat.

If that's the case then kill those people that go to Africa to shoot elephants, lions monkeys and whatever else for sport.

+fescolfaro
Friend, your facts are wrong. Lufthansa Airlines just suffered a crash this year on 24 March 2015, when an aircraft of its low cost carrier Germanwings smashed into the French Alps.

In these perilous times, statistics don't mean much and anything can always happen for the first time. Today, your company can have the safest record of all the airlines in the world today but in the next 6-9 months, it may suffer two catastrophic disasters such as an aircraft being lost in the ocean or an being shot down by another country.
Felipe Scolfaro
Felipe Scolfaro - 5 years ago
Then you can use the same reasoning and fly Lufthansa, since the german Airways never lost a plane and had the last fatal accident over 20 years ago, 1993.
DelScully
DelScully - 5 years ago
+6laderunner yeah but like he said, if something happens in a plane, you're done for. Is it worth it?
Felipe Scolfaro
Felipe Scolfaro - 5 years ago
+6laderunner There is something to consider, though. Where you are swimming or surfing is much more important than the fact that you're in the ocean, and that's the #1 piece of missing information in all statistics comparing the risk of a shark attack to that of a plane or car crash.

For instance, if you're a surfer in La Reunion, you're definitely much more likely to get attacked and have severe injuries (death is harder to come by...), than getting injured by just driving around the island. Western Australia is also shooting the odds up. So it just doesn't make sense to sum up all beach goers' experiences into a big bag of "possible encounters", when 99% of the people go swimming or surfing in places where there hasn't been a single case of a registered attack, it's the 1% who surf where 90% of the attacks have taken place that should be worried.
6laderunner
6laderunner - 5 years ago
+Ardent Fan Right, that's why it's a statistical probability. It's not absolute. But your own driving skills are only part of the equation. Regardless, it's more dangerous to drive. It just is. You're being obstinate. The odds of being attacked by a shark are laughably tiny, even if you go in the ocean all the time (unless, of course, you're going in the ocean specifically to swim with sharks, like a researcher or guide).
Ardent Fan
Ardent Fan - 5 years ago
+6laderunner
Statistics can be misleading if you totally ignore other influencing factors. A person is only 19 times more likely to die on the road (compared to air travel)  if he has the general driving skills of those who actually died in accidents.

I am not saying that ALL the people who died in road accidents have poor driving skills but many of them do. And if a person is a careful, knowledgeable and skillful driver, such high statistics of road fatalities do not apply to him.
6laderunner
6laderunner - 5 years ago
+Ardent Fan Ok, but it's not really up for debate. And it's not an issue of reasoning the factors in your head. It's about statistics. And statistically, it's an absolute fact that cars are more dangerous. This is just the first source that popped up on Google, but I've never seen a reputable source that said otherwise: "You are nineteen times safer in a plane than in a car. Every single time you step on a plane, no matter how many times you fly, you are nineteen times less likely to die than in your car" http://anxieties.com/flying-howsafe.php#.Vb4TVhNVikp
Ardent Fan
Ardent Fan - 5 years ago
+6laderunner
The picture is very clear when it comes to the comparison between road and air travel. If any mechanical or electrical failure happens to your car when you are on the road, it is rarely life threatening.

You merely have to coast your car to the side of the road. And even if you are hit by other vehicles, the chances are high you will survive because of the protection of the car's steel cage and the cushioning of the air bags.

But when a mechanical or electrical failure happens on a plane, you are truly at the mercy and the skill of the pilots. And at 10,000 meters (30,000 feet) up in the air without any parachute, you options and second chance at life are severely limited.

So IMHO, I think your mom is much smarter than you. :-)
6laderunner
6laderunner - 5 years ago
+Ardent Fan The ironic thing is that you're actually increasing your odds of death/injury when you ignore statistics in favor of phobia, such as in the car vs. plane case. I've tried to tell my mom this, since she won't fly, but unfortunately she is not one to change her emotional reaction to things.
Ardent Fan
Ardent Fan - 5 years ago
+MrDanielHawes
My life philosophy is a bit different from you. When I have to catch a plane to go somewhere as part of my job requirement, I do it hoping that the plane doesn't have engine trouble and crash. It is because I don't have much of a choice. Do it out of necessity or lose my job. Now if you ask me to go on a holiday and take a plane to somewhere, I probably wouldn't do it. I would go there by alternate means such as driving or maybe on a cruise ship.

Similarly if you ask me to swim in the sea which is already known to have sightings of sharks near the shore or worse still, have bitten or killed someone, I surely wouldn't do it even if you paid me lots of money. That is how my brain is wired. In short, statistics matter little to me especially if I happen to be one of the fatalities of shark attack. 
MrDanielHawes
MrDanielHawes - 5 years ago
+Ardent Fan I do respect your choice not to go in the ocean though and I compliment you on your out look. Many others would just insist we kill everything in the ocean so that you feel safe swimming in it. Kudos to you, I would buy you a beer.
MrDanielHawes
MrDanielHawes - 5 years ago
+Ardent Fan Because as I said... ''the odds are so incredibly slim that it doesn't even cross most peoples minds. I would be more worried about getting smashed by a shore break and snapping my collar bone.''


I caught a Taxi once when I was about 20. Taxi driver blew a stop sign and an on coming car hit the front corner of our bumper. Sent us spinning into a nearby car park and straight into a post. It sucked, for both Taxi driver and me. I still catch Taxis though because I'm aware that the odds of that happening are pretty slim (although higher than being bitten or even seeing a Great White).

at least the waves were ok-ish. i think the 23 year old was teaching his girlfriend to surf at the time. I never heard of she took the sport up or not. Relatively not far from where i surf and i have surfed there. There are many reasons for shark attacks increasing in Australia. In my mind these must be factors - super trawlers taking too much fish, great white have been a protected species for 30 years, shark watching tours encourage the sharks curiosity with humans and increased population of ppl in the water surfing etc

Curious or not, how would you know? Are you gonna ask the shark it's intentions? Why take the risk at all? Are you that prideful and reckless to not go to shore to wait for the sharks assumed 'curiosity' to die off and for it to swim away?
Have you EVER witnessed any prey stick around while an apex predator is exuding a so called 'curious' distance and body language? No, probably not. So listen and learn from those who actually have to survive in the wild as part of the food chain.

Ok. So, this guy is surfing in an area known for sharks. He encounters a shark. While it didnt attack, it expressed interest. He than goes back into the same water weeks later, knowing whats there, and ends up being attacked. So they hunt down two great whites (apparently any two will do), kill them, and than deploy gill drum lines? Ya, that showed those stupid sharks. Those sharks should have really known better than to do what theyve been doing for hundreds of millions of years.. That is, being sharks. People are so fucking stupid. Australia's shark policies are disgusting. Their also ironic seeing as the amount of wildlife they deal with. You'd think they be more sensible.

Pasu suel
Pasu suel - 5 years ago
+Allyson Young
the reason that sharks dont mindlessly attack is not because they are only curious.
predators cannot risk getting hurt. they usually die after getting hurt. being a predator is hard hard work. so an injury could easily spell death for them.
this makes them very cautious.
sharks have evolved over millions of years as everyone, besides the creatards, knows. the sharks of today are very cautious about attacking unknown preys.

so, sharks not attacking, just means they have no idea that they can overpower a human so easily .... they are being cautious, not curious.
Maria Edwards

+Allyson Young Yeah there really isn't a point of freaking out, as the surfer said remain calm, try to get in obviously but remain calm. When the tourists see sharks here in Florida we usually see them first, its no biggy but as soon as they see them they run screaming like Banshees and the sharks go ape shit due to all the movement and sound. Please also don't honk your car horns, one or two will do, they may have a negative effect as well. It would be like trying to run from a lion on its turf.

There are so many sharks in the oceans there is no reason to protect them and they are a danger to humans.

If they only attack .00001%. 8 or so million tourists that visit Florida alone every year would get attacked should be more than 30 ankle bites a year. You are 100X more likely to die due to DUI and drowning than get BIT by a shark that is unless you surf a ton, spearfish, or shark dive for fun. They are always in the water.

Or it was curious. Sharks don't have hands or fingers like you and me. The only way they can explore anything is with their mouth. They can also sense electromagnetic fields that come anything giving off electricity. The boat motor can still have small fields around it, making the shark curious about. This animal has evolved over millions of years, their whole body is so in tune with it's surroundings, when something it doesn't recognize pops up, they want to investigate it. We shouldn't personify them by calling them "evil". No animal is evil, just have a different set of instincts that drive them to survive.

To all people who don't know the differences between fish, mammals, birds and reptiles:

Sharks are fish. And the greatest fish (and also greatest shark) is the whale shark.


You can't look to how an animal gave birth to its baby, because you also have a mammal (named platypus) who lay eggs, you have fish (like the great white) and reptiles (some snakes) who gave live birth..


The most important differences between a fish, a mammal, a bird and a reptile are:


-A fish has gills and it is cold blooded


-A mammal nurses its baby, just like dogs, horses, whales, sea lions, etc..
And every mammal has hair and is warm-blooded. (and a easy difference between a fish and a sea-mammal is: fish has a tail vin vertical and a sea-mammal has a tail vin horizontal)


-Every bird has feathers and is warm-blooded


-Every reptile has leather-like scales and is cold blooded


Don't want to be a smart ass or something, just give some information ;)

I realise this is an old post, but am replying to the original comment. Which is right.
If a shark wants to kill you, it will kill you. You can't just 'escape' a shark attack. This shark clearly posed no threat to the surfer, although it is perfectly fine to fear sharks, since they can easily kill you, the ocean is the ocean. You take that risk every time you paddle out.

+tinian33 I don't know about that. I have seen quite a few bull sharks. One time I came across 3, 3,4,5ft all in a wave "the same one I was on" chasing something and they were really majestic. Pulled my legs up and hands and said oh well if they want me its time but they went right one past. Reminded me of streamlined jet fighters or something. I think most people get bit when they mistake a hand/foot for a smacking fish or they are really hungry/ornery.

+dave rowlands Anyone who claims to not be afraid is a liar or stupid?
I am not afraid of anything. I do get scared, but I mean a fear where the fear stops you from doing something.
I will not die until I swim with sharks in open water, go sky diving, drive a dirt bike, and maybe, maybe come face to face with a wolf. That would be so cool.

Im not afraid of anything. Fear is in the mind, but it's silly to fear things. If I would see a shark pop out of the water next to me, then yes, I'd shit bricks, because it came out of nowhere. But you'd see me try to pet it if I wasn't bit. Because in my heart, I wish I could be a shark. They're so cool, and epic! I hope I come close to one. But on a serious note. If a shark were to be next to me in the water, then I'd be a little concerned and scared. But I'd keep my cool and just admire its beauty. If I get bit or killed, then okay.

Some people fear things like death, spiders, dogs, sharks, plane crashes, and tornados, earthquakes. I don't understand.
And even if I do experience those things, I will not be afraid of death, spiders, sharks, plane crashes, tornados, or earthquakes. And I seriously mean that.
Why do we even fear things....Okay, Okay, I think the only thing I really fear is pain while dying. Yet even if I do feel pain while dying, it'll be over soon, me being afraid of things, will never stop them from happening.
This reminds me of when I was swimming with my best friend in a river, he asked me to swim to the rope, I hate swimming in places where the bottom is all dark. Yes, I was scared, because it was an unusual experience. Yet after a little minutes, I did it. When we swam to the rope, I was so happy I did it. Then we swam back, and I looked at the bottom. I saw green and pitch black, and then I relt so dumb for fearing a little darkness. Hahahsha, man, I looked at it, and all I said to Nick (best friend) was, " dude I looked down, and it looked all black and stuff," Ha, im laughing about it now. It was so dumb, fearing something so silly.

Yeah, sharks can kill us, but people have had little things dropped on their heads and they have died from it. I thinl everything can kill us. But fear is a choice. And I will never choose it

Ingrid Scuba is correct though. Great White sharks are ambush predators; they observe their prey in a stealthy manner and then come out of the depths with megaton force, breaching the surface and knocking their prey semi unconscious. Bull and Tiger sharks on the other hand are more curious, and often will not back off since they don't rely on the element of surprise like the Great White.
