New Smyrna Beach Breaks Its Own Record With 23rd Shark Bite!!


According to news-journalonline, a 44-year-old surfer landed himself a spot in history when he got nipped by a shark on Sunday at New Smyrna Beach.

The victim became the 23rd shark bite victim of the year. That breaks the 2001 record of 22 bites, a tally that dubbed 2001 the “Year of the Shark.”

According to the Volusia County Beach Patrol, the unidentified man was surfing south of the jetty about noon when he felt something prick his foot.

The damage was minor, but hey… a bite’s a bite.

UPDATE: The victim was 44-year-old David Logan. He had a few small puncture wounds on his heel which paramedics bandaged, then he was right back in the water. You’re a brave man, David!
