Shark Attack Santa Barbara

October 23, 2010 by staff 

Shark Attack Santa Barbara, The man, 19 years old, was the boogie-boarding with a friend of Surf Beach, near Vandenberg Air Force Base, when a shark between 14 and 20 feet long pulled the man under the water, the Department of Santa Barbara Sheriff, said in a statement, quoting a friend.

The man later died of wounds in the leg.

Swimmers cling to boogie boards to surf, while surfers are usually on their boards.

Shark attacks are extremely rare in the U.S. West Coast, numbering from a handful or so each year, according to the Shark Research Committee, a nonprofit group that attacks documents.

Surfers were the most frequent victims and great white sharks were the most frequent aggressors caused. Local beaches will be closed for three days.
