(YAHOO!NEWS) — Summer is a little over a month away—and that means shark story season is just around the corner.
California got a jump on the perennial wave over the weekend when a kayaker says a 14-foot great white shark flipped and knocked him out of his kayak near the Central California town of Cambria.
"I got hit from underneath and started coming up out of the water," Joey Nocchi told the San Luis Obispo Tribune. "My buddies said I came out of the water 4 to 5 feet—it flipped me over the side. The shark rolled the whole kayak over, rolled me out of it, and he went over the top of it. He swam across me—his tail touched me."
