A shark was spotted in the middle of the second row on Tuesday during the World Surf League final in Lower Trestle and again just before the women’s final heat.
Two surfers on the water, Brazilian Felipe Toledo and Gabriel Medina, suddenly came out of the waves in watercolor waves at first sight after believing that they were big white from sight.
The water was cleared and the competition was postponed, leaving 18 minutes in the heat when the shark was spotted. A yellow lifeguard boat overwhelms the area as surfers and water photographers are picked up by other watercraft.
“We will take a 15-minute break. Our security patrol and lifeguard boat will make sure the shark is out of line, ”a beach announcer told the crowd. “Safety is paramount for everyone, for the public as well as for professional surfers.”
The great white look shows how unique the game is, the contestants faced nature during the event.
The announcer then said that the shark had left the area and the competition had resumed, Medina had won the heat and won its third world championship title.
Another shark sighting occurred just before the final heat of the women, with Brazilian Tatiana Weston Webb and Hawaiian Carissa Moore taking a break from the competition before entering the water.
