Crocodile was spotted 'surfing' at Broome's Cable Beach

Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 24 February, 2014 - Nevermind the heated shark cull debate going on right now, a visit by a four-metre crocodile closed Broome's Cable Beach on Saturday. The reptile was spotted around midday and stayed in the area for about seven hours. Rangers and wildlife officers closed the beach and kept a crowd of onlookers at a safe distance.

Sharon Scoble said the crocodile seemed to surfing in the waves offshore. "Oh he was huge," she said. "I mean, you see them in wildlife parks and whatever but to see one just cruising around the ocean was absolutely humbling."

Broome's Cable Beach comes to life with surf during cyclone season.
