A surfer has escaped injury after a shark attack at a beach on the New South Wales far south coast beach, but his board has been damaged.
It is understood a shark bit the surfer's board at South Broulee early this morning.
Andrew Edmunds from the Far South Coast Surf Life Saving branch says the size or species of shark is not known.
"The male surfer didn't sustain any injuries in the incident, but his board was damaged by the attack, by the shark," he said.
"The type of shark is unknown."
Mr Edmunds says people should avoid swimming at dawn and dusk.
"We'd recommend people to avoid going in the waters early in the morning and at dusk and also avoid swimming in murky waters and if they do happen to see a shark then raise the alarm and let people know so they don't get attacked," he said.
