9-year-old Chandler Moore was having a seemingly uneventful and relaxed ride on the waves on Saturday at Florida’s New Smyrna Beach, when he suddenly got knocked off his board.
Though, after careful examination of footage from the GoPro camera he was using, Chandler and his dad Shaun, quickly discovered it was a shark that had interrupted his ride.
The variety is common at New Smyrna, and Shaun sees them frequently — but to have one sim directly into your surfboard is quite rare, the Post reports.
Perhaps the attack shouldn’t come as a total surprise, New Smyrna Beach has been dubbed the “Shark Attack Capital of the World” by National Geographic.
Though, according to Shaun Moore, that’s not likely to keep the natives away.
