VIDEO: Seal pup surfs 'like a pro'

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Johnny Utah and Bodi were rivals long before Youtube, but something tell us the "Point Break" adversaries would be proud of this surfing seal.

A video posted on Monday shows some bro-tastic footage of two surfers welcoming a new friend into the fun.

According to Mashable, Mathew Stanley had a GoPro camera mounted to his surfboard while surfing in Northumberland, United Kingdom, when the playful seal pup came aboard.

The description of the encounter indicates Stanley and his buddy were initially scared before they realized it was a harmless baby seal.

After an hour or so, the surfers called it a day but the seal tried to follow them back to the shore, according to the Youtube account Insolitevideo. The pair called the authorities to report the encounter, but told Insolitevideo the seal "didn't seem unwell when he was surfing like a pro!"
