Ben Gerring: one year since the Falcon shark attack

On May 31, 2016 the unthinkable happened off Mandurah’s coast.

Ben Gerring was enjoying one of his regular surfing trips to Gearies Beach, Falcon, when he was mauled by a great white shark.

One year later, we remember the larrikin who called Mandurah home and recognise the changes which have happened in the months following his death.
