A MAN has suffered minor injuries after stepping on a shark while surfing at Moonee Beach on Monday morning. 

Mooneemitch1961 reported the attack via the Coff Coast Adcovate's website.

"At 6.30 am I was bitten by a shark on my left lower leg and my right foot," he wrote.

He said he initially thought he'd stepped on a stingray before getting a closer look.

"This serves a reminder for all beach goers to be careful surfing early mornings and around entrances of estuaries."
