Heart-stopping footage has captured the moment a group of surfers paddled for their lives as they were stalked by a great white shark.
Musician Hein Cooper, 30, was catching waves with his friend Genji Pitt near Ulladulla on NSW’s South Coast on September 18 when they spotted the five-metre great white’s dorsal fin moving rapidly towards them.
The two mates and the four other surfers in their group were filmed by an onlooker paddling desperately back to to the rocks to escape the predator.
Mr Cooper, who initially confused the shark for a harmless seal, told Daily Mail Australia about the ‘humbling’ moment he realised he was in a life-threatening situation.
