Derik Broshar was enjoying his vacation from Iowa in Byron Bay, Australia. As most tourists tend to do, he was filming some dudes catching some waves at the popular destination of Byron Bay.
What he didn’t expect to catch on film was one of the surfer’s very close encounter with a seemingly large shark.
In the video, we can spot the surfers awaiting the big one, paddling among themselves and having a general good time.
Queue the Jaws music!!
The shark can be seen surfacing the wave one of the unlucky surfers happens to catch.
In the audio of the video you can hear Derik say:
“He’s going to swim right into it.”
The surfer notices the killer fish and tries not to panic. What he did next was actually extraordinary.
