Another beachgoer, Andrew Boris, captured the whole thing on camera while a stunned crowd watched in amazement.

"I actually got a chance to briefly talk to the guy who caught the shark," Boris explained to "He's not a professional or anything like that. He said he's just an adrenaline junky."

A lifeguard then used a jet ski to take the shark further out to sea before releasing it. Find out more on the story in the video above.
