(The West Australian) Two diving mates who fended off a 4m white pointer shark on Saturday near Geraldton have described the close encounter as a "life-changing experience".
Nathan Podmore and Dave Richards captured their face-to-face moment with the predator on video and have been trying to comprehend how they escaped harm.
"I'd just got into the water and I hadn't shot a fish or anything and there she was," Mr Podmore told The West Australian.

"She was probably there 25 seconds before we even knew she was there - the video shows it," Mr Podmore said.
