California surfer escapes injury after shark bites her board.

Elinor Dempsey, 54, said she was surfing at Morro Strand state beach, just north of Morro Bay, at about 10am when a shark swam under her board and bit it, leaving a35cm-wide bite mark. Dempsey told the San Luis Obispo Tribune that she was shaken by her close encounter with the shark and might take a break from surfing. “I’ll be staying close in from now on,” she said. “I’ll probably be on my boogie board for a little while.”
