Great White Shark Filmed In Waves Just Inches Away From Byron Bay Surfers

by

Footage has emerged online showing a great white shark cruising just inches away from surfers at The Pass in Byron Bay.

The shark, which appears to be around 5 feet or 1.5 metres in length, shows no real interest in the surfers as far as a food source, but the footage supports local sentiment that there are plenty of white sharks in the area and in particular that numbers may be increasing.
