A SHARK attack on an Aussie schoolie in Bali has left the teen requiring emergency surgery.

Mark Andrews, 18, was surfing with a group of school friends at a beach near Tabanan when the animal attacked at about 1.30pm yesterday, biting his right hand.

The teen was last night undergoing treatment at the Bali International Medical Clinic where staff said he would require surgery for the wound.

BIMC emergency department nurse Romi Putu, who treated the youngster, said there did not appear to be any nerve or tendon damage.

He said Mr Andrews was expected to make a full recovery once surgeons cleaned and stitched up his damaged hand.
