Aaron Moir decided it would be fun to ride a hammerhead shark in the Montebello Islands, 100km north of Exmouth in Austria.
The 25 year-old skipper claims to have ridden six to seven sharks in the past.
He told Perth Now its not dangerous except for “some pretty bad chafing”
Saying:“I was thinking, ‘Right, it’s hammer time’. Bang — I just jumped on.”
“I tell you what though, their skin is as rough as sandpaper. I couldn’t wear undies for three days because it ripped my thighs to shreds.
“The guests all had a laugh. They call me the shark rider.”
“The sharks get a bit of a fright for a second but that’s it”
He has now set his sites on riding a tiger shark and if her really gets his confidence he may even try a Great White Shark.
Generally speaking jumping on the back of a shark is a very bad idea and although most sharks are not man eaters, they can still cause massive injures.
