Brandon Beaver discovered floating in the water covered in Shark bites after his fiancée reported him missing

The body of a naked surfer covered in shark bites was discovered near a San Diego beach.

Authorities said on Friday they believe Brandon Beaver had been surfing on Wednesday and then drowned, before he was bitten by sharks.

The 42-year-old man was found floating in the water early on Thursday, after his fiancee had reported him missing.

San Diego Lifeguard Lt. John Everhart told KSWB-TV the man's surfboard was found separately with his wetsuit tied around it.

'I’ve been doing this 30 years almost and I’ve never seen someone do that. It’s just a very strange decision to make when you’re out on the water,' he said.

The death is now under investigation.
