A man has been airlifted to Royal Perth Hospital with apparent leg injuries after he was bitten by a shark near Gracetown.
A man in his 30s was attacked by a shark shortly before 8am.
Surf photographer Peter Jovic watched the attack from the beach and likened it to the live broadcast of a shark attack in South Africa in 2015.
"If anyone is familiar with the Mick Fanning moment at Jeffreys Bay it was quite similar to that, where a shark pretty much popped up and knocked a surfer off his board".
Another radio caller said other surfers had been spooked by the shark and had started leaving the water just before the attack happened.
According to The West Australian, John John and Nathan Florence encountered two large sharks during a free surf in the days leading up the Margaret River Pro.
The World Surf League have tweeted that they will be putting the World Surf League on hold as a result of the incident.
Mr Newland said the man was conscious the whole time.
"He had cuts to both legs".
