Sadly it looks like 51-year-old man may have lost his life to a shark attack at Port Kennedy.
No doubt the media will be all over this
His family have made the statement that they don't want the shark killed, good on them that takes courage.
I surf regularly just around the corner hopefully it may drop the crowd level but I doubt it.
Shark attacks used to be very rare in the southern part of WA but some thing changed about 7 to 10 years ago and we lose some one regularly in very close.
