Esperance senior sergeant Justin Tarasinski said up to eight surfers were in the water at the time of the attack

« The surfboard ran aground near where the attack took place and with obvious signs of a shark attack, » he told reporters on Friday

« The chances of survival are obviously pretty slim considering some of the accounts provided to us »

The search, involving jet skis and boats, was called off due to lack of daylight on Friday night, but will resume on Saturday morning, with police divers also set to join the desperate search

« We’ve had a lot of attacks over the past seven years It’s really, really disappointing »
