FLAGLER BEACH (Bay News 9) -- Jessica Riley was surfing on Flagler Beach (http://www.baynews9.com/Maps.html?Flagler%20beach,%20Fl) when she said instinct told her to take her hand out of the water.

Moments later, a shark bit a piece of her board.

"As soon as I raised it out, this thing comes up and chomps right on it," Riley said. "I was like oh my gosh, I lost an arm, my leg's bitten off."

Riley said the whole experience was completely surreal.
"The whole like... jaws effect. Like, where you see the eyeballs and then they turn white and the teeth were crooked," Riley said.

The shark pulled on her surfboard leash taking her under the water but did not attack.
