Shark Bites – news & sightings

With a GoPro camera attached to your board, you can capture cool video and time-lapse photos while shredding in the surf. Last week, a California surfer visiting Kaanapali Beach in Maui may have caught something more—his own attack by a shark.

Last Tuesday, April 2, the 58-year-old was attacked by a shark while sitting on a surfboard, with both legs in the water, about 100 yards offshore. The man, who was able to paddle to shore, was hospitalized with two deep lacerations on his right thigh.

Police recovered a GoPro camera that was attached to his surfboard, and are holding the video as evidence while they continue to investigate the incident.
