Shark Tries To Bite Surfer In Morro Bay

SAN LUIS (KPIX 5) -- Beaches along the Central Coast were shut down after a shark nearly took a bite out a surfer Saturday morning.

A 54-year-old woman was surfing just north of Morro Bay, north of San Luis, when the shark swam under her board and chomped it.

The woman said she pushed her board toward the shark as she jumped off. When it swam away, she got back on and paddled to shore.

The woman was shaken but not hurt.
