A second Australian shark attack in less than 48 hours has left a surfer with an eight-inch gash to his leg and forced the closure of a popular holiday beach on the northern New South Wales coast.

The 43-year-old local was bitten at Shelly Beach, near Ballina, about 7:10am today.

He said the man came onshore, wrapped his leg, and went to the hospital for treatment of a 20-centimetre wound.

DPI shark biologists have measured the shark tooth imprints on the surfboard and believe the shark involved was a juvenile white shark of around 2.6 metres in total length.

According to state police, all city beaches of Ballina are closed. Jet skis and a drone have been deployed to survey the area.

And even then, based on the past two years' shark meshing trials, Cr Wright said the nets wouldn't have covered that stretch of the beach.

Mr Jonsson was driven to a nearby hospital where he is in a stable condition. "He used the board to belt the shark away", Mr Wright said.

Shark nets at Shelly Beach and four others on the north coast were removed in May after a almost five-month NSW government trial.

Officers from the Department of Primary Industries, responsible for shark management, said the surfer's board was pierced with holes.

Cr Wright said he was unsure if the SMART drumlines were now out in the water.

Despite the injury, the surfer was able to scare the shark with Board to get to shore, where he was given first aid and taken to hospital.

Ms Wishart said SLS NSW would also be monitoring the other Ballina beaches.
