NEW SMYRNA BEACH, Fla. (WTHR) — A shark came a bit too close for comfort for a young surfer in Florida over the weekend.

Seven-year-old Chandler Moore was surfing with his family when he was knocked off his surfboard by the shark. He was recording on his family's GoPro.

The shark jumps out of the water from underneath the board. Chandler said he thought it was a scared fish.

The boy said the run-in isn't going to keep him off his board and out of the water any time soon. He said he only wants to surf more now.
