Exciting to think I was tandem body dragging while teaching a lesson just a mile south of this.

What type of shark was it that decided to have a little taste? Glad to see that it wasn't anything more than a superficial injury but it is the psychological that would have me worried!

Interesting that the shark let go. I've heard humans aren't on their "menu", or maybe the shark was looking for a smaller prey.

The guy did a hand drag into a swell he was riding. The shark bit on to his arm and pulled him off his board and into the wave. I have heard of other guys bitten while hand dragging. Thousands of them moving north day after day and only a few of us, relatively speaking. Lets go kite the migration and hope you aren't one of the lucky few to stop for a taste.
