Northeastern Pacific great white sharks are protected under the California Endangered Species Act.

In 2019, there were 64 confirmed unprovoked shark attacks on humans and 41 confirmed provoked attacks worldwide, according to the University of Florida's International Shark Attack File, which it said was down from the average of 82 incidents annually.

Posting a picture of Ben with his surf board, friend Johnny Brewer said: 'BK had one of the biggest hearts and you'll be missed brother.

In 1984, a 16-foot great white shark killed a man at Pigeon Point.

"He started screaming. I honestly thought he was mucking around with his friends", Sedunary told 9 News. Oh, we all know, save the Battle of Waterloo, World War I, World War II, Vietnam etc., that the "surrendering" bit is a disgusting slur.

Witness Graham Blade was filming from a cliff lookout when the shark surfaced and zeroed in on the tourist and continued circling as Dylan and Mr Sedunary dashed for shore. "It was lucky Matt was there and Matt was so calm".

Two congressional committees subpoenaed the bank documents as part of their investigations into Trump and his businesses. The accountants and banks aren't contesting the subpoenas and have said they will comply with their legal obligations.

The type of shark was not immediately known.

Despite the close call, Mr Nacass said "it's normal, it's natural" for sharks to be in the water and would not be deterred from heading back to surf.

After the incident, Nacass was admitted to hospital to have puncture marks on his legs treated. Authorities said Conger was bitten from behind and pulled underwater.

First responders told NBC Bay Area that there were two other surfers in the water when the attack occurred.

"More than anything to do with surfing, I think he wanted his life to reflect Jesus in the way he treated people", said friend Kyle Pitchford. "Get back on the horse, as they say".
