Surfer, photographer and former body boarding world champion Sacha Specker had a near-death incident while surfing at Dunes in Noordhoek on Friday.
Specker was rescued from a great white shark by fellow surfers who bravely surrounded him and scared the shark away.
Talking to CapeTalk’s Pippa Hudson on Monday, Specker described how he escaped a close shave with a great white shark.

There were twelve of us in the water when I heard SHARK!— Sacha Specker, surfer and photographer
