“That day we could see that there was a seal just buzzing around for a couple of hours,” he said.

“It just took off in an instant started gliding under me and then jumped out, launched itself into the air right next me.”

“I was shaking my head and laughing that it was happening but it’s also pretty rattling, like it’s this animal the size of a cow right next to you.”

The surf spot is at the mouth of a river and Russell said it attracts seals because fish populate the area. There’s been shark attacks in the area before.

“My brother has seen a couple of sharks around there, so it was a bit of a relief when it was a seal that popped up.”

Russell thinks this could be the best photo he’ll ever be in… he’s probably right tbh.
