NEWPORT, Oregon - A surfer says a shark took a bite out of his surfboard Thursday afternoon off Newport. On October 10th a surfer at Seaside said he was knocked off his board by a great white shark and landed on the back of the shark for a few seconds as it swam off.

Bobby Gumm took his board to Ocean Pulse Surboards in Newport and showed employees how a large piece was bitten off. He was not injured.
