It first appears that three to four Bronze Whalers are swimming to the along the shore, but Jason told DMARGE that one of them was actually an almost 10-feet-long Great White Shark.

“I can't 100% guarantee it but… the nose is pointy and the movement… like I said… [appears to be that of a Great White].”

Jason adds that:

“Any shark other than a Grey Nurse shark I have been informed by [the] council to inform Lifeguards if they become close to beachgoers and especially if they're amongst the salmon. 50% of surfers stay in if it's a Bronze Whaler but if it's a Great White they all get out. The one this morning is not 100% confirmed a Great White but I'm pretty confident it was by the movement. The last time I saw a Great White was back in May last year 2019.”

Fortunately, there hasn't been any unprovoked shark attack in the Sydney regions since 1963 according to this report from 2015.
