As reported on WESH Orlando.

A 44-year-old man got right back on his surfboard to enjoy the waves off Florida’s east coast after paramedics treated him for a small shark bite.

David Logan was bitten Sunday at about noon near New Smyrna Beach. The bite made Logan the 23rd bite victim of the year off the coast of Volusia County. That breaks the county’s record of 22 bites in 2001.Logan had a series of small puncture wounds about an eighth of an inch long on his heel. Paramedics bandaged it, and he set off back into the water.

Brave surfers still dotted the beach on Monday despite Sunday’s attack.

“I think anybody out here is too concerned about it you know. Unless they’re on feeding frenzy,” one surfer said. Officials pointed out that there had 23 attacks but thousands of people have been in the water.
