Math captured this GoPro footage of a baby seal climbing on his board and playing with him and a friend in the water.

We caught up with Matt to get the low down on what happened:
“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,” he explained.

After an hour or so of playing around with the pup, the guys decided to head back to the shore, but the little guy hadn’t finished and tried to follow them up the beach. “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!”

  8. So why can’t seals learn to surf too ?? LOL

  9. When a seal do that it’s because of a shark! 

  10. a real sport is housework.

  11. eat dirt only. rocks dont feel pain.

  12. Can anyone leave a comment without spewing propaganda, racial intolerance
    or hate speech?
    P.S. Awww… adorable. :)

  13. I love his squinty-eyed happy face when the guy is petting him, at about
    1:29. Probably orphaned or newly independent, and glad to have some contact
    with a fellow mammal.

  14. “SEAL” of approval, get it? Cause, y’know it’s a baby….nevermind you get
    it..

  15. How can anyone dislike this? 

  16. Awww! How adorable!!! ^^

  17. Animals eat Animals…..You can be the vegan sheep, ill be the meat eating
    wolf.

  18. trop drôle ,un plaisir évident jouer avec les humains !

  19. Abraham Jellybean

    Cool

  20. *heavy breathing* i want a baby seal. 

  21. hidden sky (hiddensky)

    his left eye, he wanted help :(

  22. Stylé j’adore l’idée?

  23. Theres a good chance that there was a shark in the water because seals will
    act that way if there is a shark in the water XD

  24. As with all things in life, we need only look to the animal kingdom to see
    how we should live our lives. Humans are carnivores and herbivores. That
    being said, I believe humans should grow or hunt (no guns) their own meat.
    You don’t see lions caging 100’s of antelope and shooting them up
    w/steroids, right? Its not natural.

    А потом его съела касатка

  26. where you encounter that seal or is it yours

  27. He tried to high five the seal XD. Lol fail

  28. I would only let a Navy SEAL swim with me ;D

  29. Did it ever cross your mind that it might be seeking safety from a
    predator? A predator that’s watching you two. Great white or orca
    probably. 

  30. Seal is like: “Dude! THERE IS A FUCKING SHARK IN THE WATER! GET ME OUT OF
    HERE!!!”
    Surfer: “Awww… look at this guy!”
    Seal: “FUCKING GO!!!”

  31. It’s got a boo boo eye at about 1:32

  32. dogs of the ocean. So darn cute

  33. 물개찡… 기여워양……

  34. Super vidéo comme d’hab?

  35. Seal probably went to mom and told her. guess what I did today

  36. initially i thought it might have been trying to get away from something.
    e.g. shark. 

  37. You see a surfing seal? I see one lazy buggah!

  38. Ik zou ze zo mee naar huis nemen

  39. It’s cute
    It’s funny.
    If you see anything more than that….. get counseling.
    [You’re broken]

  40. Pity there is no sound.

  41. Better put some extra wax on this board so seal can hang on better.
    Maybe she/he is afraid of a shark in the water.

  42. 666 dislikes? Whats to dislike about this video? The seal came along for
    the ride!

  43. That’s adorable

  44. Bloody seal is a freakin’ useless surfer. I reckon it needs a few basic
    lessons, like how to stay on the board to start with.

  45. no audio?

  46. where is this place?

  47. there is no sound 

  48. Cute animal but the guy must have thought it smelled like hell cause they
    really do smell bad. Especially in packs.

  49. Mom just showed me on a Facebook video in 2 minutes ago, but I’m like so
    totally <3 this video alot

  50. About the seal on a surfboard :-)

  51. Looks like the seal is blind in the right eye

  52. I bet the poor sod is now dead because it trusted human’s RIP.

  53. Is it just me or does the seal’s right eye seem swollen?

    Even though seals are curious and playful of nature, i cant help but think
    that there is another reason behind this unusual behaviour. I’m no expert,
    but I think that beneath the waves is a shark chasing that seal.

  55. This guy is a teacher at my school and he subbed for my French teacher
    yesterday and he’s a little different but I’m still jealous that he came up
    close with a seal. You rock Mr. Stanley!

  56. Hahaha, thats great. What a nice surprise. I think its probably had some
    human contact in the past and possibly been rescued and then released back
    into the wild. Would be nice to think it wasn’t tho

  57. like my tuxedo cat and my macbook air,

  58. 으악 이 세상에서 제일 귀엽다 ㅠㅠ

  59. well done cousin

  60. ONWARD HUMANS
