The Department of Primary Industries is now examining the board, which appears to have been bitten by a shark at Flat Rock off Ballina on Sunday.

Reports on social media said a kiteboarder initially thought he’d hit a turtle until he returned to shore and saw bite marks and a tooth embedded in his board.

The DPI is assessing the tooth and the board to identify the shark size and species.
