A man has been airlifted to Royal Perth Hospital with apparent leg injuries after he was bitten by a shark near Gracetown.
The man in his 30's was attacked at Cobblestone surfing spot before 8:00am this morning.
Beach closures are in place around Gracetown including North Point, Big Rock and Left Handers and fisheries officers are monitoring the area.
It seems like the waters were a little risky due to a whale carcass nearby.
The incident forced competition to be suspended at the nearby Margaret River Pro, but the action resumed a short time ago.
