Surf's Up for This Baby Seal

He just wanted to catch some waves.

— -- A baby seal surprised a pair of surfers this weekend.

The slippery pup not only crept up on Matthew Stanley and Andrew Flounders as they were "out enjoying some summer waves," but also showed off some skills of his own.

In the accompanying text, Stanley 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!"
