“Sammy the Seal ALMOST catches a wave out in the Pacific Beach, San Diego Ca surf - but I do think we should count it as at least a noseride. Hehe,” wrote digital creator Ed Hartel while sharing a video on Instagram.

Hartel shared that the seal named Sammy would haul itself out of the water and stay on a surfboard for five to ten minutes. The little creature would then paddle over to another surfboard. Surfers who witnessed this adorable sight made a conscious effort not to disturb the seal, allowing it to enjoy its surfing escapades freely, reported People Magazine.

The magazine also reported that several surfers recall witnessing a possible shark attack on the seal pup’s mom a week ago. Since then, the baby seal has been swimming close to the shore near Tourmaline Park.
