Ralph Collier of the Shark Research Committee made the judgment after examining the body of 39-year-old Francisco Solorio, of Orcutt.
Mr Solorio was bitten in the upper torso in the waters off Surf Beach in Santa Barbara County on Tuesday and died at the scene despite a friend's efforts to save him.
Surf Beach is at Vandenberg Air Force Base, about 150 miles north west of Los Angeles.
