A 17-year-old surfer was attacked by a shark off Australia's east coast on Monday, with locals saying he was lucky his board bore the brunt from a suspected great white.With school holidays in full swing, police declared beaches across Ballina, some 740 kilometers (460 miles) north of Sydney, closed for 24 hours.Of the 14 unprovoked shark attacks off the New South Wales coast in 2015, most occurred along a 60-kilometer hotspot from Evans Head to Byron Bay which includes the town of Ballina.Bruce said it was too early to say what kind of shark was responsible, but a 3.5 metre great white was spotted at Lighthouse Beach by aerial surveillance after the attack.
