A Florida surfer trying to impress onlookers leapt from his board while riding a wave — only to land on a shark. The incident occurred Sunday at New Smyrna Beach, which is known as the “shark bite capital of the world.” In spite of the beach’s nickname, the unidentified 27-year-old suffered several cuts and bruises in the run-in but was not bitten, authorities say. Since 2009, 81 people have been bitten by sharks in the waters off Volusia County. Of those victims, 52 were surfers. Nevertheless, New Smyrna Beach remains one of the country’s most popular surfing destinations. Would you go in the water at New Smyrna Beach? Have you ever encountered a shark?
