Surfer nipped by shark near south jetty

What do you get when you mix the good waves -- the first in weeks -- with murky water near the New Smyrna Beach jetty?

The 12th shark bite of the year.

A 29-year-old surfer was bitten on his left foot Thursday afternoon.

"The surfer was sitting on his board with his feet dangling in the water when he was bit," Beach Patrol Capt. Scott Petersohn said.

He came ashore and was given first aid by a lifeguard, and it is unlikely the surfer will even need stitches, Petersohn said. He then drove himself north to the Jacksonville area where he lives.

"The surfers have just been sitting looking at their boards," Petersohn said. "This is the perfect recipe for a shark bite -- lots of surfers and murky water at Ponce Inlet."
