It’s been a while since we have run an article featuring surfing animals, in all honesty, we thought we had seen it all. Over the years we have seen dogs, goats, seals, bear cubs and of course Kama the surfing pig but until today we have never heard of a surfing monkey, but, as they say, there is always a first time for everything. The radical primate in question is known as Beaker the surfing monkey and todays featured clip, shows him enjoying a few waves in the Mentawai Islands!
Totally at home on the nose of the board, Beaker surfs like a boss and even after taking a wipeout clambers back on, looking rather bedraggled, and promptly hangs 10 fingers over the front of the surfboard! Beaker certainly enjoys riding waves and his level of stoke is quite obvious as he rejoins the boat in the channel at the end of the session.
The video comes courtesy of Togat Nusa Retreat and can be seen below this article. Do you know of any other unusual surfing animals and what do you think of Beakers board riding skills?
