Kiwi surfer Paige Hareb was one of the first back in the water at the Margaret River WSL event in Western Australia after a man was attacked by a shark nearby.

The attack at Cobblestones beach was reported shortly before 8am, with an ambulance crew from Margaret River and the rescue helicopter sent to the scene.

The 41-year-old was bitten on his right leg and his board left with visible teeth marks.

Channel Nine reporter Michael Stamp said the man did not realise the beach was closed.

"That could lead to sharks coming close in to shore along this stretch of coast", a statement said.

It comes as the first attack victim, aged in his 30s, was rushed to Royal Perth Hospital for emergency surgery.

The hospital described the victim's condition as stable.

"If anyone is familiar with the Mick Fanning moment.it was very similar to that, where a shark pretty much popped up and ended up knocking a surfer off his board", Jovic told Australian Broadcasting Corp. radio.

It seems like the waters were a little risky due to a whale carcass nearby.

Beach closures are in place for the Gracetown area, including North Point, Big Rock and Lefthanders.

A second person is attacked by a shark near Gracetown in WA's South West, just hours after a man was bitten on the legs in an incident which forced the Margaret River Pro surfing competition to be delayed.

"Typically we have three or four in the water dedicated to surfer safety and also to our shark safety protocol and we've stepped that up now, we've actually got seven in the line-up and we've increased our drone presence to two".

"We are placing the Margaret River Pro on hold while we work with local authorities on next steps".

He said the incident emphasised the need to do more, including using SMART drumlines, rather than the Labor government's subsidised shark deterrent devices.
