«What’s funny (or not) is the fact that we didn’t even know that it was a shark, until I came home and saw the video, says 40-year-old Sean. — After that we surfed for another half hour».

At first they thought it was just a fish, but as it turned out, the fish turned out to be «difficult».

According to Sean Moore, it was a blacktip shark. They are widely distributed in coastal tropical and subtropical waters around the world. On average, these sharks reach a length of 1.5 meters. Being active predators, blacktip sharks prey on small schooling fish. As a rule, blacktip sharks are afraid of humans and are not dangerous, however, if you have food, they become aggressive and may attack.

Chandler, who is engaged in surfing from the age of 4, says not afraid, even after hearing that from the Board he was hit by a marine predator.
«He’s a daredevil,» adds Sean Moore.

Father and son, who live in Orlando, spend a lot of time on the beach and often go surfing in new Smyrna, which, according to National Geographic, known as «the World capital of shark attacks».

In August the shark there was bitten three people on the same beach within 24 hours.

«If the waves are good, a couple of sharks does not scare anybody,» laughs Sean Moore.
