There has been a shark warning issued along a stretch of the San Mateo County coast.

It was posted Saturday after a man fishing from a kayak had a close encounter with a Great White shark just north of Pigeon Point.

Adam Coca says the shark hit the kayak so hard it rolled over. Then he says he managed to cling to the hull, and looked the shark right in the eyes as it chewed on the boat before swimming away.

Coca may have been scared, but he was not injured.
