A beach is now open after a shark attacked a surfer, police say.

It was closed a mile in either direction on Tuesday.

Officers say the 58-year old man from California is now recovering at a hospital in Maui.

Lifeguards say the shark was about eight to 10 feet long.

They say its head was about the same size as a basketball.
