Surfing Seal! {Video}

After seeing an adorable baby sea lion climb aboard a boat to receive snuggles and cuddles, we thought we’d seen everything!

Never mind lounging on a boat—check out this seal with seriously sick surfin’ skills!

Mathew Stanley and his buddy Andrew Flounders were catchin’ some waves, and capturing the footage on a GoPro camera.

Imagine their surprise when the little seal attempted to hoist himself onto one of their surfboards!

The little marine mammal appeared to have some trouble staying balanced on the board, but hey—remember he’s still just a gremmie.

The friendly seal played around in the water with the guys for about an hour before Mathew and Andrew decided it was time to head back to shore.

The seal apparently wanted to chill out more with his new surf homies, so he swam after them toward the beach!

Once they were back on the shore, the guys called the local marine wildlife authority, to make sure the surfin’ seal was doing okay.

Love elephant and want to go steady?
