A surfer has escaped unscathed after an altercation with a shark at Lorne this morning.
Marcel Brundler was surfing east of Lorne this morning when a three metre white-pointer attacked him.
"When he got me he kind of dragged me on a little bit. Luckily I was wearing a really, really thick rubber wetsuit, which probably saved me from bigger injuries," Mr Brundler told the ABC.
"Then I've just given him a punch and luckily a set wave came around and I've just taken off on the set wave and ridden it to the rocks to safety."
The beach has been closed and Fisheries Victoria has been notified of the attack.
