Surfing with the sharks

Florida's New Smyrna Beach is known as the shark bite capital of the world (this year the count has already reached twelve), but lucky for these surfers, this 6ft blacktip shark, professional photographer Kem McNair captured by chance, was more interested in jumping on Monday. After finishing surfing for the day, Kem, shot this three images sequence to another surfer riding a wave. When he looked back at the display he discovered the "intruder".

    Kem McNair here, to clarify, i don't know the surfer in fact we have trying to find him for over a week with no luck. We have found the surfer closest to the shark. He should be on inside edition tomorrow (monday 21st) I have been shooting and selling surf photos professionally for years.

    How common are black-tipped reef sharks off the east coast of Florida? Seems strange to have one where there are no reefs.
