An Australian YouTuber has captured his terrifying encounter with a tiger shark who took a bite out of his board while paddleboarding in the middle of the ocean.

Brodie Moss, who runs the channel YBS Youngbloods, was enjoying the open sea on his paddleboard earlier this week when he came across a big shark chasing a turtle in the water.

It wasn’t long before Moss found himself observing the encounter from only a metre away as the turtle and pursuing tiger shark swam underneath his paddleboard.

‘Tiger shark and this turtle – big showdown, and I’m right in the thick of it,’ the West Australian ocean enthusiast can be heard saying as he filmed the chase. 

Moss continued to paddle away and swears to himself as the shark closed in on the turtle.

The turtle manages to get away and swims under the YouTuber’s paddleboard again with the tiger shark still in pursuit.

‘Oh this is intense, they’re underneath me!’ Moss said. ‘I don’t know if I’m in the best position right here.’ 

The tiger shark then turns around, raises its head above the ocean and proceeds to take a bite out of the YouTuber’s board.

The momentum from the bite causes Moss to fall off his board into the ocean and drop his GoPro. which lands on the ocean floor.

It appeared the daredevil was okay following the terrifying encounter as he wrote in the caption of the clip that the incident was not the shark’s fault.

‘A humbling reminder for myself that it’s their ocean and I’m just a visitor! I love sharks and this little accident was not the big fellas [sic] fault,’ Moss wrote.

Many followers of the YouTuber shared their concerns about the close run-in in the comment section.

‘Woah, what a somewhat scary but incredible thing to witness. Ive seen turtles with teeth marks but never seen an interaction before,’ said one.

‘WHAT, that could actually have gone so poorly,’ commented another.

A third added: ‘That could have gone so badly so quickly.’

One fan believed Moss had put himself in a ‘stupid’ situation and should’ve attempted to paddle away. 

‘I mostly enjoy your content but this was a very stupid position you put yourself in.’

‘When they were swimming together you should’ve given them space instead of paddling towards them and putting yourself at risk,’ the user wrote.
