[WATCH] bodyboarder thinks he’s about to be attacked by a giant shark


Hilarious footage shows the moment an adventurous  body-boarder got a fright after mistaking a dolphins fin for a sharks tail.

Uploading to YouTube, Craig Bateman was swimming near Ballina, New South Wales 'The shark capital of Australia'  where he spotted the majestic creature.

Shot with a Go-Pro camera from a point-of-view angle, he takes the clear blue waters and screams in shock as he sees the dorsal fin come dangerously close to him and then swim off.

He laughs and thanks a friend for his help after he realises his humorous mistake.
'Darn you dolphin! Make me squeal like a girl', the 42-year-old said 'My life flashed before my eyes'.
 In the video the regular-surfer posts 'The moment when you think your life is done.'

Craig who said that he 'braced himself for the worst' said that he had never been that close to a shark before and that his first instinct was to 'yell'.

Another viewer 'pj3bo' commented: 'Your scream was classic.'
