SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — Surfers in San Francisco’s Ocean Beach were surprised to see a great white shark in the water on Wednesday afternoon, according to Surfline.com.
Nick Masturzo said he was surfing at around 8:46 a.m. when he saw a 7-to-8 foot juvenile great white shark.
“I saw it straight on,” Masturzo told Surfline. “And when I saw that white belly go up and the super defined white of pectoral fins I knew what it was. I told everyone around me and went in. It was funny, some people were saying, ‘that’s not cool,’ but I would never say ‘shark’ on a small day to try to clear the water. If it was six-to-eight-foot, maybe. [Laughs.]”
Nobody was hurt at the beach.
