 An Australian man died Tuesday after being attacked by a shark while surfing off the southwestern coast, police said.

The 31-year-old was attacked while surfing alone early in the morning at a beach near Gracetown, about 175 miles (280 kilometers) south of the Western Australia state capital of Perth.

Great white sharks are common off that part of the coast.

In 2004, another local surfer died after a shark attack at a Gracetown beach.
