Swimmer at Ōhope Beach, New Zealand, dashes from water after the fins of sharks spotted behind him

This is the terrifying moment a swimmer sprints out of the ocean as two sharks nip at his heels. 

The beachgoer was enjoying a dip in the shallows of Ōhope Beach, 90 minutes east of Rotorua in New Zealand in late January, when holidaymakers screamed ‘shark, shark’. 

The terrifying incident was recorded by 15-year-old Eliza Squire, who was staying at the Ōhope Top 10 Holiday Park.

The swimmer casually emerged from the surf, having ducked under water and been unable to hear locals shouting loudly from the sand.

He then walked slowly through the seawater, as shark fins are seen terrifyingly close to him before he suddenly turns around. 

He makes a dramatic dash to shore, launching himself onto a wave and swimming with broad strokes to get away.

As he reaches closer to land, other people in swimsuits including a young boy, are shown peering out towards the surf to see the fins.

The father of the teenager who took the footage, Phil Squire, said there was a crowd gathering to alert the man in the water. 

‘People were shouting, shark, shark! Two fins appeared near the man and he got a huge fright and took off,’ he told Stuff NZ

The surfer said other people around the beach had heard there were shark sightings.  

‘Information does travel up and down the beach and I guess one of the clues that there might be a problem was that there were a lot of people out of the water.’ 

Mr Squire said people needed to remember the ocean is the domain of marine other creatures and human guests needed to be aware of them. 

‘I’m a surfer and you realise these areas are the sharks’ natural habitats and people visiting rightfully need to be careful.’
