Muriwai locals have formed a guard of honour with their surfboards at the funeral of shark attack victim Adam Strange.
Hundreds of people turned out at the Muriwai Surf Lifesaving club rooms on Monday afternoon for the 46-year-old television commercial and film director's funeral.
Strange was killed in a rare shark attack at Muriwai Beach on Auckland's west coast last Wednesday.
Many mourners donned jandals and as Strange's coffin arrived at the club rooms on the back of a Kombi wagon, locals held their surfboards in a guard of honour.
The funeral service itself was private.
Meanwhile, Tim Jago, chairman of the Muriwai Volunteer Lifeguard Service, told media two sharks were involved in separate attacks on Strange.
Mr Jago said he was attacked first by a bronze whaler, before he was fatally attacked by a great white.
No sharks have been sighted at the beach since the attack.
The popular surf beach reopened to the public on Saturday, after it was closed following the attack.
