Eden Hasson, was surfing earlier this week in New South Wales, Australia, when his dad noticed something in the water.
The 10-year-old's father, Chris Hasson, snapped some pictures and went back to see that a shark was right next to Eden.
According to Huffington Post, "After his dad showed him the photo, Eden said he was relieved he didn’t see the shark while he was in the water." Eden said, "If I was on the wave and I saw it I probably would have freaked out and fell off."
Photo 3: Eden Hasson: Shark Whisperer...Background to photo. Up Northern for the late surf. Storm in background. I'm on the rocks taking photos of Eden. I see a big dark shape and about to call the small group in and Eden takes of on a left and smashes it to the beach. Just as he is taking off I see something out of the corner of my eye. I keep shooting and after he finishes and starts paddling out I zoom in on the second photo and see he's just done a backhand snap on an 8 foot Great White Sharks head. Call everyone in and show them the photo. Lucky he didn't fall off. This photo is going straight to the pool room. Not everyday you get a photo surfing over a big white. Check its mouth. It's rolled over having a good look at his yummy yellow new wetsuit. @edenhasson333 @livyg333 #grom

Hasson was very lucky. You think that an encounter like that would scare someone but Eden was back in the water the next day.
