Bunker Bay: we lost another friend

A bodyboarder has lost his life in a shark attack at Boneyards break, Bunker Bay, Western Australia. Kyle Burden was a passionate rider and an ocean lover.

"Whenever we would talk and I would ask him how he was doing he would say 'Living the dream mum, living the dream'", said his mother Sharon Burden. Kyle had moved from Sydney to WA's Margaret River region in order to live the surfing lifestyle.
