A local kayaker is speaking out after a great white shark goes on the attack.Duane Strosaker said he was five miles off Gaviota State Park when the 15-foot shark rose out of the water and bit down on his tiny boat.

"It's head was huge and it bit down and it held onto me for about 10 to 15 seconds," he said. "I was actually screaming like a little girl."

Strosaker wasn't hurt in the attack, but his kayak suffered a few puncture wounds.
