Safety officials said the 10-20 great whites had come within 10 feet of the shoreline, but said the sharks have not shown aggressive behavior.

Stockbridge said announcements have been given via intercom to surfers and beachgoers a few times in the a year ago, mostly in the Sunset Beach area in Huntington. "We'd spot them periodically, and towards the end of the summer they disappeared".
Shark sightings are not uncommon in California, but attacks are rare.
That increased number may just mean there are more sharks, Lowe said.
