    FLORIDA - If you've got plans to head to the beaches this week for spring break, be on the lookout for some really big fish.

    Two beachgoers claim a shark bit them over the weekend.

    In Delray Beach on Saturday, kite boarder Kurt Hoffman was ripping up the waves when he said he saw the side of a shark.

    Hoffman said it was about 4 to 5 feet long.

    "All of a sudden it hits, it felt like a bear trap. It just clinched down on my forearm, and then released. So that was kind of cool," said Hoffman.

    On Singer Island, a 9-year-old boy was swimming on his surfboard when he was dragged underwater.

    The boy kicked the shark in the face and paddled back to shore.

    Both beachgoers are recovering and are expected to be OK.
