Two Coffs Men's Close Encounter With a Great White Shark!

Footage shows the close encounter

Two Coffs Coast men had a close encounter with a great white shark on Saturday.

Dave Barwise and Ken Gerke were kayaking off Urunga when the giant shark was noticed just metres from one of the men.

As Mr Gerke started to paddle away, the shark began to follow him.

Circling multiple times, both men were able to get vision of the creature both above and below the water.

Vision taken by Mr Barwise nearby shows the curious shark calmly swimming within a few metres from his mate's kayak.
