Shark attacks kayak in Cambria
May 15, 2012
Joey Nocchi, 30, of Paso Robles was fishing for rockfish with a couple of friends when the 15-foot shark came up from underneath and knocked his kayak several feet in the air, flipped it over, then bit a hole in the vessel, and dumped Nocchi in the water.
Nocchi climbed on top of the upside down kayak while the shark retreated to deeper waters. He then flipped the kayak over and paddled for shore with his vessel taking on water.
Officials posted signs along the beach warning surfers, swimmers, and boaters of the attack.
