Watch video of a surfing shark in a Avalon beach

Was it a surf or a jump? Maybe half a surf?

Either way a a two-metre shark has been captured jumping out of the water at Avalon Beach.

Surf Life Saving WA have confirmed the shark was sighted 100m offshore at 6.41am on Tuesday. 

The shark species has not been confirmed. 

Falcon woman Jennifer Schrader said a pod of dolphins were feeding in the same area. 

Ms Schrader said the dolphins left the area after the shark surfaced.

She said there were a handful of witnesses at the beach. 

In the past week there have been four public shark sightings in Mandurah. 

Shark mitigation conversations have reached fever pitch recently as strategies to protect beach-goers, swimmers and surfers have been debated following 20-year-old Albany bodyboarder Noah Symmans being bitten by a grey-nurse shark off Pyramids Beach on November 11.

The Mandurah Mail reported recently that only 14 surfers in the Mandurah area have taken up the state government’s offer of subsidised personal shark deterrent devices so far.
