A shark came a bit too close for comfort for a young surfer in Florida over the weekend.

Seven-year-old Chandler Moore was surfing with his family at New Smyrna beach when he was knocked off his surfboard by the shark.

The encounter was captured on the family's Go-Pro. In the video the shark is seen jumping out of the water.

At first, Chandler thought the shark was a scared fish but the run-in isn't going to keep him out of the water.

The second-grader said he wants to surf more now.
