Surfer Has Close Encounter With Great White Shark

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK -

One stunned surfer came within feet of a fully-grown, great white shark while surfing near New York City.

The surfer's camera picked up the image when he was riding the waves off Rockaway Beach in Queens this past October.

He didn't even know about the shark until he got home and checked out the footage.

Some have questioned the authenticity of the image, but a noted shark expert said the picture does indeed show a great white shark.

He says it was at least 10 feet long.
