Terrifying moment paddleboarder catches sight of a pack of sharks in the middle of the ocean and FALLS off his board
- Australian YouTuber Brodie Moss filmed himself paddling in the open ocean
- He was surrounded by a pack of sharks when he terrifyingly fell into the water
- He quickly managed to get back onto his board without becoming shark bait
A paddleboarder nearly became shark bait after he fell off his board in the middle of the ocean while surrounded by a pack of the deadly fish.
Brodie Moss, an Australian filmmaker and ocean enthusiast, was enjoying a day out in the open sea when he stumbled across a group of sharks swimming near the surface.
‘They look like they’re ready to hunt, I reckon if I even put my foot in the water they would go at it,’ he is heard saying in a now viral TikTok.
Just seconds later, Mr Moss loses his balance and falls straight into the water below – metres from the sharks lurking near him.

Luckily for the YouTuber, he managed to scramble back onto his board without attracting the interest of the sharks.
‘I love this kind of stuff so much,’ he said after the terrifying encounter.
His video has amassed close to 830,000 views with many stunned at Mr Moss’ composure despite landing in the water next to a group of hungry sharks.
‘I would’ve passed out from pure fear and either drown or be eaten,’ someone wrote.
‘So much anxiety in two seconds,’ another said.
‘I’m literally nauseated from your fall. Made my heart race. That would be my worst nightmare,’ one Aussie admitted.
Mr Moss is no stranger to the dangers of the ocean, and recently filmed a ‘sexually frustrated’ sea snake slithering right towards him.
‘Sea snakes normally avoid humans but at this time of year they become very active, sexually frustrated and potentially aggressive as they look for a mate,’ he explained.

In the footage the two-metre serpent surfaces from the depths of the ocean floor and makes a bee-line for Brodie’s paddleboard.
‘He’s just come straight at me again. How intimidating is this,’ he says.
‘Look at this. It’s a big old dog.’
In one heart-racing moment the giant snake places its head on the board before slithering away as quickly as it appeared.
Even crazier footage is seen on his YouTube channel, with videos showing Mr Moss free diving through deep caves with his girlfriend, swimming with manta rays and even fending off sharks to catch fish.
