Beach Grit broke the story on the surfer killed by suspected great white at Kelpies, Esperance; the same beach teenage surfer killed by great white in 2017 and where surfer lost both arms to great white in 2014.

He talks to Dr Jon Cohen who knows hits by Great Whites in Esperance are a new reality.

“I know some guys who were in the ED that day (Laeticia Brouwer was killed) and it was a traumatic experience to manage. Cases like that are preventable deaths. People can act on the beach if they’re there when it happens. It might be scary to talk about but it’s reassuring to know that there is something you can do and it’s not complicated.”
