KIHEI, Hawaii – Witnesses say a 54-year-old surfer made it to shore on his own after a shark attack off Maui.

The unidentified man was treated and released for bites to his upper right thigh and lower right ankle after the Monday morning attack at Kalama Beach Park.

Maui County spokeswoman Mahina Martin says a 6- to 8-foot sand shark was believed to be the culprit.

The beach was closed until sunset after the attack.
