We have our own surfing pig in New Zealand, yes - go Zorro - but so does Hawaii, and their superstar hog is getting so huge (both literally and figuratively) that's he's batting away the endorsement deals. 

Kama's love for the water was discovered when he accidentally slipped into his buddy Kai Holt's pool: low and behold, this little piglet could swim, and swim well.

Since then he hits the waves almost daily with his main man Holt, who told the Huffington Post that their friendship is all about joy and water: "[Surfing is] like true happiness," said Holt. "And that's what this guy does. Everywhere he goes he makes people smile and laugh. He just brings joy to the world." 

Since he first started surfing, Kama has gained around 15 kgs (making it logistically trickier to get him out on the water), and has also reeled in a bunch of sponsors. 

GoPro gears him up with camera equipment, and Local Motion, Hurley and Safeway provide him with surfing goodies. 

Plus, he's also scored a sow: Kama has a girlfriend pig who works as an actress. A-list.
