Shark photobombs surfer moms at competition Down Under


Cape Town - An amateur photographer, Steph Bellamy, caught one of the most unlikely acts of nature on her Samsung smartphone at a recent surfing competition at Coffs Harbour in New South Wales, Australia, when a spinner shark leaped clear out of the water right in the midst of a few surfing mothers!

Bellamy told BBC News Australia, that the spinner shark jumped out of the water twice, and she was able to photograph it during its second leap. 


Bellamy's son is one of the young surfers at the Coffs Harbour Boardriders Club, who hosted the surfing competition. When the spinner shark breached, some mothers and their kids doing a special race as part on the competition. Bellamy said she had never seen moms paddle that fast in her entire life!

She told SkyNews that she saw a splash and wondered what it was, and then hit the 'snap' button on the camera anyway. She said she wondered if she had captured 'the splash' on camera, but couldn't believe her eyes when she looked at it.

After the Aussie moms paddled back to shore, they waited for about 10 minutes, where-after the surfing competition resumed.
