Terrible moment when a huge tiger shark pounces on the paddleboarder and chews his board and throws him into the water

The eerie video shows a giant tiger shark suddenly pouncing on a paddleboarder and throwing him into the sea.

Brodie Moss filmed the predator as it tried to snag a giant turtle inches below its toes – and then accidentally chewed on its board.

Brodie shared the footage with his 1 million Instagram followers and on his YouTube channel, YBS Youngbloods.

“Tiger shark and this turtle – big showdown and I’m in the thick of it,” he is heard saying.

The massive shark thrashes near the surface while the squirming turtle tries to escape its jaws.

The hunt continues alongside and under his board in the ocean off Western Australia.

At one point, Brodie realizes the danger when he finds himself halfway between predator and prey.

“Oh, that’s intense, they’re underneath me,” says Brodie.

“Oh, I don’t know if I’m in the best position here. Oh I’m between a tiger and a turtle.

At that moment, the shark jumps out of the water and sinks its teeth into its board.

Brodie falls into the water along with his camera, which falls to the sea floor.

He can reach it and it captures his face as he swims back to the surface seconds later.

Luckily he was unharmed in the melee.

He wrote on Instagram alongside the video: “A humiliating reminder to myself that it’s her ocean and I’m just a visitor!

“I love sharks and that little accident wasn’t the big guy’s fault.”

Sea enthusiast Brodie, 32, has built a huge following with videos of him camping and fishing along the coast of Western Australia.

In 2019 he quit his job as an electrician to become a full-time YouTuber.

He told ABC, “I started making enough money to pay my bills and I ended up being a full-time electrician getting in the way of being a YouTuber.

“(Quiting) was kind of creepy. I had bills to pay, a mortgage, and a full-time job.

“I was pretty narrow minded, I figured I had to have a full-time job, that there wasn’t much money to be made from social media.”

It paid off and he’s now making much more of his sun-soaked adventures than he did as a trader.

His videos, which also feature his dog, girlfriend and members of his family, are regularly viewed millions of times.

Many feature close encounters with sharks, whales, turtles and sea snakes.

Western Australia is one of the world’s hotspots for shark attacks on humans.

In November 2020, a bodyboarder was killed near Broome, the eighth fatal attack that year.

A year later, British father Paul Millachip was beaten to death while swimming in Freemantle.

There were claims that he was attacked by a great white and a tiger shark at the same time.

In February this year, a British diving instructor was killed by a 15-foot white man in Sydney.

Experts say most victims are bitten when the sharks mistake them for prey like seals.
