A shark attacked a surfer on the Central Coast on Saturday morning, biting him on the neck and forearm and taking a chunk out of his surfboard at Marina State Beach, the Monterey County Herald reported.

Fellow surfers used beach towels to apply a tourniquet to Eric Tarantino's arm wound after he got to shore with the help of a friend, the newspaper said. He was later airlifted to San Jose Regional Medical Center. Authorities said his injuries did not appear life threatening.

They plan to post signs warning of shark danger at beaches from Fort Ord to Moss Landing.
