A surfer has died after being attacked by a Shark off the coast of the town of Morro Bay, in San Louis Opisbo County, California, on Friday 24 December 2021. The body of the 31-year-old man, whose identity has not been identified, was recovered after fellow surfer Rebecca Frimmer of Morro Bay found his board floating off the town, then discovered he was still attached. Despite attempts at resuscitation, the surfer was declared dead at the scene, with injuries described as severe enough that it was unlikely he was alive when found. The attack is thought to have been carried out by a Great White, the only large species of Shark found in the area.
