Shark attack closes Margaret River pro surfing event

A man in his 30s has been bitten by a shark near Gracetown in Western Australia's South West, with organisers temporarily suspending the nearby Margaret River Pro global surfing competition.

The 41-year-old was bitten on his right leg and his board left with visible teeth marks.

He said paramedics on the ground reported that first aid from the man's friends was crucial in the moments after the attack, as they used a leg rope to stem blood flow.

Mr Travaglini was flown to Royal Perth Hospital where he remains in a stable condition in the trauma unit following surgery.

"The surfer who was being attacked ended up miraculously bodysurfing into a little wave and getting pushed in by a local at the same time, who was out there with him, and making it to shore before everyone came to his aid". "I can't say how he is".

"We're sending our thoughts and prayers to him and his family during this hard time and we're working together to do everything we can to support him and his family moving forward", Mr Majeks said.

Under an agreement with the federal government, WA fisheries officers are authorised to kill sharks that are identified as causing an "serious threat" to human life, such as those involved in an attack.

Volunteer fire crews are on the beach to assist the helicopter in landing.

Gracetown beaches, including North Point, Big Rock and Lefthanders, have been closed.

The Shark Smart website says the carcass could make nearby waters unsafe until it's removed.

The incident reportedly happened at Cobblestones, south of Gracetown and Cowaramup, near Margaret River, about three hours south of Perth.

Opposition Leader Mike Nahan said the attack would make worldwide news because of the Pro event.
