There are reports a person has been bitten by a shark

A man in his 30s was attacked by a shark shortly before 8am (local time).

Two men have been separately attacked by a shark in Western Australia, with one managing to walk to an ambulance and the other bodysurfing back to shore where friends applied a tourniquet to stem his bleeding.

"There was a lot more thrashing around after that, it was pretty hard to see what was going on".

"After discussing with local authorities, the water safety team and surfers, the WSL commissioner's office has made a decision to resume competition for the Margaret River Pro at Main Break at 10.40am, following a one-hour hold prompted by reports of a shark incident at Gracetown - approximately 15km away from the event site", a spokeswoman said.

Jovic said everyone was "walking around like stunned mullets" after the attack.

"I saw the guy who had been attacked get separated from the board and then start to paddle for an inside wave, which he managed to body surf all the way in", he added.

It's understood the sharks could be in the area due to a whale carcass reported by Fisheries, and Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions officers are working towards its removal.
