A YouTuber has shared frightening footage showing a shark taking a bite out of his paddleboard while it hunts a turtle.

Australian YouTuber Brodie Moss, known as Youngbloods to his 3.28 million followers, uploaded the dramatic footage in a YouTube short.

In the clip, he is paddelling when he spots a large turtle on one side of his board and a tiger shark on the other.

"Big showdown," he says panning toward both animals. "I'm right in the thick of it".

"Oh no," he says as both animals brush by the board and the shark draws closer to the turtle. "Holy sh*t."

Mr Moss didn't say in the clip where the stoush happened.

The altercation gets progressively more aggressive as the shark begins to circle the board after the turtle swims under it.

"They've gone underneath me," he says. "I don't know if I'm in the best position right here. Look the tiger's got the turtle right beneath me".

As he does one last pan, the shark is seen swimming to the back of the board and latching its jaws to the side, causing Mr Moss to fall into the water.

The camera also drops into underwater, before the YouTuber picks it back up looking shaken at what just happened and the clip cuts off.

The video has 102,000 views so far with hundreds of shocked users commenting on the video.

"WHAT, that could actually have gone so poorly," one user wrote.

"Holy sh*t that was a legit bite," another exclaimed. "Eyes rolled and everything".

Others questioned if he had put himself in a dangerous position.

"Actively chases them and positions in the middle repeatedly: 'I'm not in the best position here'," one user pointed out.

"Mate, take it easy," said another. "This could easily have never made it to the channel".
