Sharks and kayaks — an unnerving mix

A great white shark followed a man in a kayak Saturday off Nauset Beach on Cape Cod. In Monterey Bay, near Santa Cruz, Calif., a great white shark attacked a kayak. There were no injuries in either attack.

Orleans, Mass., resident Dana Richardson tells the Cape Cod Times he saw a shark fin following him Saturday while he was paddle-boarding about 200 feet from shore in 8 feet of water and then later spotted a fin following a kayaker. The kayaker quickly rowed ashore.
