Matthew Stanley and his friend Andrew Flounders were out surfing when they were surprised by a baby seal that wanted to join them!
“Me and my friend Andrew Flounders were out enjoying some summer waves when this little guy came along and scared the hell out of Andy because we didn’t know what it was! It nudged his foot from underneath,” he explained.
They played with the pup for about an hour before heading back to shore, but the little guy hadn’t finished and tried to follow them up the beach.
Matthew said, “When we got home Andy rang the local marine wildlife authority to make them aware of what occurred just in case the seal was unwell…He didn’t seem unwell when he was surfing in like a pro!”
