Check out this great video of 30 dolphins surfing together on one wave. You’ll see two dolphins leap into the air at about 00:15 seconds. Then, toward the end … surfs up for the pod!
Dave Riggs from the filmmaking company RiggsAustralia filmed the video with a quadcopter in south Western Australia. Husband and wife team Jennene and Dave Riggs wrote on their Vimeo page:
Huge pods of bottlenose dolphins cruise the shoreline, surfing, playing and teaching their young how to forage amongst the crystal clear turquoise waters.
