"Its tail flipped over and it was just underneath my board and I just couldn't move. I looked down and I see my blood all through the water and I was like: I am in trouble here".
He had been surfing off the popular Baylys Beach surf spot near Dargaville when the shark attacked.
Mr Brough received bites to his arm and hand, but managed to get back to shore.
He was collected by helicopter from outside a shop on Seaview Rd, which happened to be called Sharkys Takeaways. He was flown to Whangarei Hospital for treatment.
It's not known what type of shark it was.
