Stressful: The moment when a 7-year-old on a surfboard crashed into a shark and fell into the sea
A 7-year-old boy from Florida fell off a surfboard - and it was only when he got out of the sea and watched the documentation from his pro camera that he discovered the cause of the fall was a shark that crashed into it. The father said in response: "The boy wasn't excited to hear it was a shark. He's a little naughty."
Stressful: The moment when a 7-year-old on a surfboard crashed into a shark and fell into the seaTWITTER
The 7-year-old Chandler Moore, who began surfing when he was 4 years old, documented himself on the Go Pro camera catching waves on the New Smyrna Florida beach when, for no apparent reason, he was taken off his surfboard. Chandler got on the surfboard again and continued to surf for about half an hour before leaving the sea and watching the documentation from the camera attached to the front of his surfboard. Only then, he and his father Sean Moore, realized what led to the surprising fall from the surfboard: a shark that entered directly in Chandler. "What's funny is that we didn't even know it was a shark until we got out of the sea," 40-year-old Sean Shawn told the New York Post. Initially, they thought it was a small marine creature that came across a child and knocked him down. "He said he saw a fish - and I assumed that was what knocked him down," Sean added.More in Walla!

The two claimed to be a small fringe shark that is very common in the area. So, true, the shark encountered by Chandler was indeed small, posing no real danger and is often seen on the beach, but the chance that one of them will crash directly into your surfboard is certainly a rare occurrence.
Chandler himself wasn't too scared when he found out what had knocked him off the surfboard, "It didn't pressure him at all," said Sean, "he's a little naughty." The father and son, who live in Orlando, spend a lot of time on the beach and often travel about an hour to surf the New Smyrna beach - known as the "Sharks Attack Capital of the World."
Last August, three bathers on the New Smyrna Beach were bitten by sharks in a 24-hour period and last month a 450-pound white shark appeared on the beach. The regular bathers are not too excited about the presence of the predators. Sean adds: "If the waves are good, a pair of sharks won't scare anyone."
