Stop Right Now and Watch This Baby Seal Learn to Surf

As ridiculous and oversaturated as YouTube GoPro footage has become, sometimes the people who insist on filming themselves doing whatever it is they are doing still strike gold.  Like Matt Stanley, who while minding his business off the coast of Northumberland UK surfing, captured a very curious baby seal.  No cynicism can be maintained when watching the seal who wanted to learn to surf.

Let's do it brah, slice the waves dude!

Stanley to Insolitevideo:

"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."

 Stanley said they played with the pup for around an hour and it even tried to follow them back to the shore.  After their fun, the two men notified the local wildlife authority know that the pup was out there.  Just in case it needed help.

Stanley to The BBC:

"It kept sliding off, but every time you caught a wave it would surf in on the white water."

Check out the pup's sporting event below:
