Killer whales, surfing

by brian lam

Last week in New Zealand’s Sandy Bay, some killer whales were seen surfing.

Northland’s marine mammal expert Ingrid Visser said surfers were safe around orcas as the mammals were there for the same thing – to go surfing and have a good time. She could tell they had been getting as much of a buzz out of it as the humans because adult males, usually stoic members of the group, would “cavort” like youngsters, racing around at full speed.”
