With more than 20 confirmed sightings of sharks breaching at Sunset Beach in Pacific Palisades last Summer, this year might be no different. A local surfer spoke to KTLA last night saying that he's spotted a dozen shark breaches last week at Will Rogers Beach, even catching a few on videotape (watch the video here). At least one of those has been confirmed as a Great White by expert Ralph Collier at the local non profit Shark Research Committee. Collier says sharks do not typically pose a threat to humans. And most surfers seem to be happy to hit the waves and share the waters with them.
