Cowabunga! Or should we say pig-abunga?

Enter Kama the pig.

This pig favours three-foot-high Hawaiian waves, and serves as the mascot of Sandy Beach Park on the Hawaiian island of Oahu.

The agile pig took up the intense sport after his adoptive parents, Kai Holt and his family, noticed his swimming prowess when he fell into a swimming pool.

After his first wave at Makapu'u Beach Park, the rest fell into place.

Maybe he should get together with New Zealand's Zorro, for a surf date.

Pig's up, Kama.
