The latest surfing animal to go viral is Kama, an adorable pig who hangs ten better than most people.
 
Kama developed his skills on the surfboard after the orphaned piglet was adopted by a human family. When Kai Holt saw the baby pig fall into the family’s swimming pool and immediately start swimming like a porcine Michael Phelps, he realized the pig was a water fanatic. After Kama got acclimated to swimming pools, Holt, an avid surfer, decided to test the waters, literally, and take Kama out to catch some waves at one of Oahu’s famed beaches. As Holt says in the video, if the pig can swim, he can definitely surf. Sure enough, the pig was a natural, digging his hooves into the front of Holt’s board and soon Kama and Holt were out riding the waves together with Kama standing tall while Holt paddles.
 
Thanks to GoPro cameras strapped to the board and Kama’s head, the entire internet can get a pig’s eye view as he heads out on a surfing safari.
