    SAN DIEGO, California (KCAL) — Surfs up, seal pup!

A young seal has been climbing on multiple surfboards out in the water near Pacific Beach in San Diego on Tuesday.

According to the drone photographer, the pup has been doing it for the past couple days and appears to be an orphan.

The seal pup can be seen popping out of the water and wiggling onto the surfboards of many surfers. A couple even caught some waves with the little guy!

SeaWorld and the city were contacted about the adventurous little seal and went out to evaluate it. When officials arrived they found the seal pup out in the water and said it appeared to be happy and healthy.

Although the pup’s mother was no where to be found, the team said there was no need to intervene since the seal seemed old enough to take care of itself.
