It was a scary moment for this traveling French blogger when she came close to a great white shark while kite-surfing off the coast of Western Australia.
The 30-year-old who has been documenting her trips on social media uploaded the drone footage to Facebook showing just how close she was to becoming lunch for the great white.
Isabelle said she thinks the shark was about two metres long and mistakenly dismissed the “big black shadow” underneath as the kiteboard’s shadow.
“Then I thought it was a dolphin trick, you know when they spring out just in front of you. But no, it was circling me,” she said.
“When it passed beneath me, I realised it was a huge Great White shark.”
Luckily for this traveling blogger, her friend spotted the massive shark on the drone footage and was shouting for her to get out of the water.
“I was struggling to get my ass out of the water and thought ‘I am done.”
“I saw my life parade in front of my eyes every time I felt myself touch the water.”

Eventually, Isabelle managed to get to safety in one piece with a ripper story to share with her 9,000 fans on @TravelingWithIsa.
But the encounter with the Great White wasn’t going to this traveling blogger down, to overcome her misadventure, she climbed a 65-metre-high tree the next day.
