Viral: Baby seal surfs like a pro

One lucky surfer got the "seal of approval."

This baby seal seems like a pro. The pup caught up with a couple of surfers who were using a GoPro camera to record their surf trip. According to the YouTube user Insolitevideo, Mathew Stanley and a friend were playing around with the pup in the water for about an hour.

Stanley said they tried to head in to the shore, but the seal still wanted to play. The pup followed them and like a pro, climbed aboard! It took a number of tries for the seal to stay on the board without slipping off, but the seal never gave up! The pup seems to be having the time of its life.

The surfers called it "once-in-a-lifetime experience" too in their interview to BBC.
