Shark Skin

Okay, so what does a living shark feel like?

I've seen drawings of the backward-facing scales in sharkskin, read descriptions of hides feeling "rough," "raspy" or "sandpaperish." But has anyone here ever actually touched a shark (*), run their hand along one, or otherwise had a tactile experience with an actual shark's skin? Because I haven't, but a character in my new story does.

Any impressions you can convey are welcome.

Thanks!

* = By "shark," I mean a 6+'-foot-long full-sized sea-swimmer, not a home-aquarium-sized breed.
