When surfer Gary May got “thumped” in the waves at Yallingup Main Break on Saturday he looked down on his 9-foot, 33-inch (282 centimetre), wide paddleboard and saw the jaws of a shark wrapped around the rail.
That was the moment right before he fell and landed on the shark. Reiten Lost Die Meisten Meiner Probleme Bier Lost Den Rest Shirt, hoodie
Mr May was in Yallingup in south west Western Australia celebrating his 75th birthday and “just wanted to catch a decent sized wave.”
“On the Friday when I got down there it was glassy and hardly any wind, I went out and got three really nice waves which were over head height,” he said.
“That made my birthday really great.”
The next morning he went to Margaret River in the morning but it was too hard so he went back to Yallingup and paddled out off the reef.
“I went through the channel and headed north, I went in a big semi-circle arc behind the back,” he said.
“I was kneeling up on a 9-foot paddleboard, 33 inches wide (3.6m), I was minding my own business when all of a sudden out of nowhere I got hit like a bomb on the side of the board.
“When I felt the impact I looked down and saw the head of a shark attached to the rail, its upper jaw was over the top and its lower jaw was over the bottom, it had the whole rail in its mouth.
“When they measured it the mouth of the shark was 20 centimetres wide, I thought it was only 5-foot (1.5 metres), but they have said it was between 5 and 7-foot (2.1m).”
When the shark knocked Mr May off his board he fell forward onto the shark could feel it wriggle out underneath him.
“I wasn’t too worried other than it might nip me when it swam out,” he said.
Mr May thought it was better that the shark had bitten his board rather than him.
Mr May had dropped his paddle when fell off the board, which he said was the one cardinal rule of paddleboarding, not to lose your paddle.
