‘Then I thought it was a dolphin trick, you know when they spring out just in front of you. But no, it was circling me,” she says in the voiceover of the video posted to Facebook.
‘When it passed beneath me, I realised it was a huge Great White shark.’
Her friend could see everything via the camera and was shouting at her to return to shore.
She says when she got back she was shaking - but at least now she can say she’s been surfing with sharks!
