Surfing with seals in the UK

Surf's up, seals.

When something unknown touches your leg in the ocean, the worst possible scenario comes to mind.

But when a gentle nudge grazed Andrew Flounders' foot while surfing in Northumberland, United Kingdom, it was just a playful seal that wanted to join in on the fun.

Mathew Stanley captured footage of the baby seal climbing atop his surf board on a GoPro.

The BBC reports that the pup chilled with the surfers for about an hour before they headed to shore, but the seal was so friendly, it followed them to the beach.

Although the seal didn't appear to be injured, the YouTube description states that Flounders called the local marine wildlife to make sure.

Clearly, seals like to bro out, too.
