On Wednesday afternoon, Greg Long of San Clemente, CA. was nearly the victim of a tiger shark attack. Long’s surfboard wasn’t so lucky and had a chunk ripped out of it. Beaches along the North Shore were closed while officials assessed the situation.
“Out of nowhere just got launched up out of my board, he came up from straight underneath and hit right underneath the board and threw me right into the air, Long said. “And I landed basically right on top of him, right next to him. If I was lying on my board he must have missed me by no more than a quarter of an inch. So, luckiest man alive on the North Shore as far as I say.
According to reports, it was an eight foot tiger shark that bumped him and bit his surfboard. More to followâ€¦
