Description

On May 29, 2015 Andy Falk reported;β€œAt approximately 10:30am I was surfing near the point at Fort Cronkhite , San Francisco with one other guy. There were about a dozen other surfers just to the South of us on the next peak over. I spotted a fin about 75 yards outside the lineup. The water was 54 degrees, the air about the same, the surf conditions were 3 – 5 feet. I immediately paddled in past the other surfer who was on his way back to the lineup. He ignored me when I told him I had spotted a fin. Onshore I told another surfer I'd seen a fin and he said; 'it was probably a dolphin, we see them here all the time.' The shape of the fin was definitely not a dolphin or porpoise. It was not swimming in the arcing fashion of a dolphin or porpoise. There was no question based on the size and shape of the fin it was a Great White Shark.”

Lifeguards prohibited people from going into the water from North Beach to Lasuen Beach at 9:40 a.m. as a precaution after a fisherman reported the sighting and verified it with a photograph. The closure was lifted at 11:40 a.m. without incident. Photograph courtesy of Zachary Harmon.

A man who was bitten by a shark while surfing off the Northern California coast over the weekend is expected to survive.

Samoa Peninsula Fire District Chief Dale Unea said the man was bitten on the upper left thigh Sunday morning near Humboldt Bay close to Eureka, KTVU-TV reported.

The man, whose identity was not released, paddled to shore and met rescue crews about 8:45 a.m. He was aided by other surfers, who wrapped his wound and kept him warm.

The injury was minor, authorities said, and the man is expected to survive.

Another surfer, Scott Stephens, also survived a shark attack in the same area last year.

While snorkeling the shallows I observed approximately 30 female Leopard sharks aggregating in the shallows at the east end of the cove. This is an annual aggregation and it is thought that the females come into the warm shallows to incubate their developing embryos.
