FIGURE EIGHT ISLAND, NC (WECT) - A man from Wilmington was surfing Saturday afternoon, when he got a little to close to a shark.

Josh Clement tells that he caught a wave Saturday afternoon and then caught the shark. He was getting back on to his board, when he accidentally kicked the shark. The shark put two holes in his left and a deep gash in his ankle.

Clement went to the hospital to get stitches.

Clement says he's still pretty sore today. Otherwise, he's going to be okay.
