British surfer Matt was enjoying some waves off the Cornish coast when he was joined by a very unusual guest… A seal! A seal who seemed to love surfing. Normally, seals will only jump up onto a surfboard to escape danger or because they’re sick. But there was nothing wrong with this fella! Although his technique needs a little work…
Matt said afterwards: “Me and my friend Andrew were out enjoying some summer waves when this little guy came along and scared the hell out of Andy because we didn’t know what it was! It nudged his foot from underneath. When we got home Andy rang the local marine wildlife authority to make them aware of what occurred just in case the seal was unwell. He didn’t seem unwell when he was surfing in like a pro!”
