Kama, the Surfing Pig, Shows Off His Mad Skills in a GoPro Video

This is probably going to be the cutest things you’ll ever see on a surfboard.

Meet Kama, Kamapua’a for short and an Oahu, Hawaii local. Like most Hawaiians, Kama is a natural on a surfboard, and in the warm waters of the Pacific for that matter. Nothing that extraordinary there… except of course the fact that Kama, well, he’s a pet pig and probably has no business being on a board hanging ten (errr, hanging hooves?) other than being, like I said, a natural on it. So move over Dane Reynolds and Kelly Slater. A new power surfer’s in town.

Kama’s surfer human whom he met happenstance during his days as a young homeless pig, Kai Holt, had this epiphany one fateful day after Kama fell into the family pool and started swimming that his furry little friend could quite possibly be a surfing savant. Lucky for them both, he was spot on.

These days, you’ll see Kama riding the waves (and swimming in the ocean with probably zero fear of sharks three times his since that might enjoy him for dinner) like a boss, and if you’re lucky, you might just catch his awesome and adorable talents in person. Today, however, you’re just going to have to be satisfied with a GoPro surfing video Kama made with his human to show off his mad skills. Oh, and also, go follow him on Instagram if you want a daily dose of happiness.

Pigs still cannot fly, but I like to believe there’s still a reason to hope now that they’ve learned to surf. It’s going to be a good day.

Watch the video after the jump.
