PACIFICA, Calif. — Micah Flansburg was fishing off the coast of Pacifica State Beach on Tuesday afternoon when the bottom of his kayak suddenly jolted.

“I had my paddle on my lap, and my fishing pole and a bottle of home brew,” he told San Francisco television station KGO. “The next thing I know, every single thing I had went flying in the air.”

It was a shark — one Flansburg guessed was a 10-foot juvenile great white.

“The shark came and it hit the bottom of the boat, lifted the boat up and grabbed ahold of it and just started shaking the whole boat,” Flansburg said. “And I’m just hanging on to this thing.”
