Matthew Stanley and his mate Andrew Flounders were surfing when they got the surprise of a lifetime — a baby seal wanted to join them!
The seal jumped up onto one of their boards and tried to get its balance, and ended up hanging out with the two surfers for an hour.
“Me and my friend Andrew were out enjoying some summer waves when this little guy came along,” Matt says. “We didn’t know what it was! It nudged his foot from underneath.”
The footage is obviously adorable, but Frances Gulland of the Marine Mammal Center in the States has warned viewers not to try this at home.
“Seals can bite and also carry infections on their teeth that can result in infected bite wounds,” she told the Los Angeles Times.
