TweetFacebookNOBBYS Beach may be closed on Saturday because of a shark residing near the shore.

The beach has been closed twice in the past two days after a shark was sighted near the reef.

Greg Goodwin saw the shark’s fin not far from the reef on Friday while he was 300 metres from the shore.

He used the reef to hide from the shark, which was about 60 metres away, and watched it closely.

After 10 minutes of constant surveillance he hurried back to the beach and raised the alarm.

‘‘It was a single fin and it was not small either,’’ he said.

‘‘It’s the first shark I’ve seen in that area and I’ve been coming here for 25 years.’’

Nobby’s Surf Life Saving Club will search the area on Saturday before re-opening the beach.

Mr Goodwin said there was a large crowd of bait fish and a lot of seaguls around the reef, which could explain why the shark was hanging around.
