Watch what happens when a baby seal goes surfing
What happens when a seal tags along with a pair of British surfer dudes off the north-east coast of England?
Matthew Stanley and Andrew Flounders were enjoying the waves off Amble in Northumberland when a young seal decided that it wanted in on the action - even though it wasn't very good at staying on the board.
Mr Stanley, whose GoPro camera caught everything on video as the seal joined them for about an hour before it swam off, told the BBC: "It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
"We had been in for about 45 minutes when the seal came along. I've seen them there before but they are usually far away.
"This one nudged Andrew's foot in the water and started getting curious."
You can catch some of the footage of the adorable aquatic mammal attempting to surf with the two surfers in the video above, which has received more than two million views on YouTube.
However, while the seal in the video looked harmless enough, authorities like the Cornish Seal Sanctuary at Gweek advise against touching the animals.
The Los Angeles Times quoted Frances Gulland, a senior scientist with the California-based Marine Mammal Center, advised people to steer clear of seals altogether saying: "Seals can bite and also carry infections on their teeth that can result in infected bite wounds."
