Matt and Andy (featured in the video) are both avid surfers and on August 4, 2014, Matt was fortunate enough to capture the following footage on his GoPro, of a baby seal climbing on his board and playing with him.
Matt told everyone about this unbelievable experience : “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 playing with the baby seal for over an hour, the guys decided it was time to head for the shore, but their new little friend wasn’t finished playing and tried to follow them back to 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!”
