11-year-old Tanner Brasol was competing in a Gnarly Charley's Grom Surfing Series contest off the coast of Satellite Beach, Florida, on Saturday, when he had a close encounter with several of the predators.

An onlooker captured one of the sharks on camera. Charley Hajek, who organizes the series of contests, told Newsweek that it was a blacktip.

Shark tourism benefits Cape Cod community

  Shark tourism benefits Cape Cod community Three years after great white shark attacks caused one death and rocked beachgoers, shark-related tourism has grown in the vacation destination of Cape Cod, Massachusetts. Local shops in Chatham sell shark-themed apparel and other knickknacks, with jaws on illustrated sharks open wide and revealing large pointed teeth. WHAT TO KNOW ABOUT SHARKS ON US COASTLINES Interested parties are able to join charter boat operators on great white shark tours near the coastline for a fee. Cape Cod hosts about 4 million visitors a year, who bring in more than $1 billion in tourism spending and support thousands of jobs.

The shark can be seen lurking just below the water's surface as the sun illuminates a rising wave, with Brasol moving towards the shore on his surfboard a few feet in front of it.

The crest of the wave then lifts Brasol high above the water's surface, before breaking on the shore.

Initially, Brasol can be seen paddling calmly towards the water's edge, but he picks up pace when the onlookers spot the shark behind him and tension audibly rises.

"I teach kids to respect the ocean," Hajek told Newsweek via email. "They listened and came in when they saw a blacktip chasing after a pod of fish."

The video below contains some strong language.

"I was very scared. I was just like 'this is not good,'" Tanner told Click Orlando. "That shark he's not happy that I was in his bait. He thought I was competition for that bait."

Teen surfer bitten by shark off Florida beach escapes with 9 stitches

"It felt like something hitting me super hard on the right side and kind of my back, and then I saw some motion, as it was hitting me, but I couldn't tell what it was until a second later," the 16-year-old told CNN.

According to the boy's mother, Kelly Brasol, the video shows the final moments of an incident involving at least two sharks.

"It was like a scene from a movie, almost like two submarines coming up and you see the dorsal fins and then the next thing you know it's like [splashing noise] all over right behind Tanner," she said.

"[The person filming] got the part where everything was finally a little bit of a relief. That's where the video that you see picks up where Tanner had just gotten out of the bait pod.

"What was still terrifying though is you could still see in the video one of the sharks was very interested in him and continued to follow him."

The person who uploaded the video, which is set to dramatic music, praised the boy's "cool and calm demeanor," and said that he set "an excellent example of how to handle yourself when interacting with sharks."

Brasol later returned to the water when it was deemed safe enough for the contest to continue, and scored the most points in his age group.

Q&A: James Bond director Cary Fukunaga on 'No Time to Die' .
NEW YORK (AP) — The film business is inherently full of starts and stops, but few have experienced the phrase “hurry up and wait” quite like “No Time to Die” director Cary Fukunaga. Fukunaga, the 44-year-old filmmaker of “Beasts of No Nation” and the first season of “True Detective,” took the job directing the 25th Bond film after Danny Boyle dropped out. What followed was, for a big-budget movie like “No Time to Die,” a sprint to rewrite the script (with Neal Purvis, Robert Wade and Phoebe Waller-Bridge), begin production in spring 2019, wrap by the fall and have the film ready for release in April 2020.
