San Diego baby seal catches invite to catch waves

Surf’s up for everyone, including this baby seal!

These San Diego surfers took on a new prodigy when a friendly seal pup became curious about their surfboards and actually wanted to surf.

The pup, who the surfers nicknamed Sammy, started to show up every morning to catch the tide. Happily crawling on their boards, he seemed eager to feel the wind on his face as they rode the waves.

To be safe, the surfers called wildlife experts to ask how to deal with Sammy’s behavior. The advice was to let Sammy keep doing his thing.

Watch this baby seal surf with the best of them.
