The search for a killer shark is set to resume in Western Australia this morning, after a man was fatally mauled at Cable Beach near Broome.

9News has confirmed the victim as Charles Cernobori, a 59-year-old who was bodyboarding 30 metres from the shoreline of the popular beach when attacked.

Mr Cernobori was a well-known Broome local who worked at the Mangrove Hotel.

Mr Cernobori's friend Ron told 9News reporter Michael Genovese that he was "shocked" his good mate had been killed.

Ron said Mr Cernobori and his partner would visit Cable Beach "now and again".

"Today he went down and never came back," he said.

Since the attack, just before 9am yesterday, all beaches in the area have been closed.

Authorities had been planning to search for the shark this morning, but stormy weather predicted for Broome is likely to hamper those plans.

Police praised the heroic actions of a man who entered the water to help Mr Cernobori, who suffered fatal injuries.

He was rushed to hospital but later died.

It is the 14th fatal shark attack in Western Australia in 10 years.

Surfer Andrew Sharpe was killed off Kelp Beds in Esperance last month.
