The more dangerous sharks are farther out away from the coast, because that's where their food source is, and close in to shore there are the harmless sharks...seen them many times.
Gawd, don't believe that for a minute, they are where they food is, thats true, but a main source of food, especially for pregnant females is seals & sea lion and you know where they are, hell there's a haul out just south of Solana beach.
So Ca coast is a birthing area, and I would bet this was a female, possible pregnant, and this poor soul looked like natural prey and being the last in a group, he was probably mistaken for injuried prey
This person has to be one of the most unlucky people alive, because I'll bet that won't happen again in decades.
I agree, but I wouldn't bet on not happening again in the next 10 yrs
