A man who was boogie boarding on Morro Bay City Beach died Friday morning after being bitten by a shark.

It happened around 10:40 am in one called “The Pit” known stretch of beach at the end of Atascadero Road.

Morro Bay Harbor officials say signs have been posted warning beachgoers of the fatal attack and banning people from the water for the next 24 hours.

According to first responders the bite appeared to be from a great white shark, but this has not been confirmed.
