The Fear Beneath brings you an *exclusive* report from the shark-y waters of Lompoc, in Northern Santa Barbara County, where earlier this year we reported on our exclusive picture of a Bixby White Shark Kill! Please report any shark sighting, encounter, or attack to either The Fear Beneath or The Shark Research Committee.
NORTHERN SANTA BARBARA COUNTY
Our sources tell us that while out surfing, a friend of theirs – Kyle (last name withheld,) was on “the outside reform” at Surf Beach Monday when a large shark began to circle him. Kyle used his surfboard as a shield and pointed the fins of his board towards the shark.
The result are these AMAZING pictures… Be sure to notice the diameter of the shark’s mouth – it is tremendous!
This looks to us like a Great White Shark, possibly 14-16 feet in length, doing some late summer hunting at your local surf spot! Be certain to use caution and have a high awareness level when recreating in this area for at least the next week.
