Police say a shark bit a terrified surfer’s board near the Australian coastal town where another surfer was mauled a day earlier.

A police statement says the 52-year-old surfer was not injured when the shark bit his board on Friday, leaving teeth marks in the fibreglass, off Lennox Head, north of Sydney.

A 32-year-old surfer, Matt Lee, remained in a critical condition at Gold Coast University Hospital on Friday after a shark seriously injured both legs near Lighthouse Beach, 10 kilometers (6 miles) south of Lennox Head at the tourist town of Ballina.

A Seven Network television news crew in a helicopter filmed what appeared to be a 4-meter (13-foot) great white shark swimming off Ballina later on Thursday.

The surfers’ contacts with sharks are particularly unusual given relatively few beach-goers are in the water during the current southern winter.
