"This photograph was taken the other day down at Lennox. 

"This shot I took of Cody Petrie surfing and we are unsure of what we see in the background. Possibly a shark?

"We got home and expected to be safe at our home break from all of that then this happens. Pretty crazy!

"We just want people to realise they are around so they are aware of the dangers."
