In a shameless effort to pull at your heartstrings, today we bring you a video of a young bear cub, that has been taking a few surf lessons from Carl Bovard at his not for profit wild animal educational centre in Florida. Bruiser the bear cub is only 10 months old but loves to play in the centres swimming pool and enjoys nothing more than getting his paws on a surfboard.
Carl owns and runs the educational centre in Melrose, Florida and as well as Bruiser, he also looks after alligators, bobcats, cougars, other bear cubs, tigers and lions! Carl likes to get very hands on with the animals and while they are infants he takes them into his house to bond with them and improve their social skills!
Bruiser is a Syrian Brown Bear and is currently the cutest animal we have seen on a Surfboard, just edging out Kama the surfing pig! To see more about Carls work at the Single Vision animal educational facility take a look at his Facebook page here. I think before I let Bruiser have a go on my board, he will have to trim his paws! Is this the cutest animal you have ever seen on a surfboard?
