The incredible moment a shark swimming alongside two unsuspecting surfers has been caught on camera.
Central Coast Drones caught the spectacular aerial footage of a shark who shared the waters with the surfers off the NSW Central Coast earlier this week.
‘These two surfers surely didn’t mind (or know) as they shared the line up with a grey nurse shark,’ Central Coast Drones wrote beside the video.

The huge shark was swimming around a school of fish at Copacabana Beach while two surfers were waiting just metres away.
James Sherrah was one of the surfers surfing beside the shark with one of his friends.
‘I could feel the shark’s presence,’ Mr Sherrah shared on social media.
However, the other surfer, who goes by the Instagram handle of Arlen_Duckers, commented saying he didn’t even know the shark was there.
‘I didn’t even know it was there. Just shows how stealthy these sharks are,’ he wrote.
The Central Coast Drones replied to Mr Sherrah saying they felt like they had a duty to let the surfers know about the close visitor.
‘Luckily he slowly cruised north,’ Central Coast Drones commented.
There had been a lot of shark activity in the waters during the past week in the area, according to the account.

The video was viewed 26,000 times since it was shared to social media two days ago.
Some commented saying they surfers were ‘basically surfing with a cute puppy’ and others said ‘this is just what we deal with in search of the perfect wave’.
Other social media users commented saying nurse sharks are the ‘Labradors of the shark species … absolutely harmless.’
