Shark attacks surfboard near the Oceano Dunes
July 6, 2014
A surfer had a close encounter with a shark early Saturday morning in the waters near the Oceano Dunes Park.
Between 7 a.m. and 8 a.m., the shark bit into the man’s board knocking him into the water. After the surfer got back on his board, the shark tried to bite at it again, but missed.
Because of the size of the bite marks, the shark is suspected of being about 8 feet in length.
Shortly afterwards, about 9 a.m., a shark was sighted near the Pismo Beach pier.
Because no one was injured, the beaches remain open, though officials are advising people to be cautious.
