NORTHUMBERLAND, ENGLAND (WALB) -

When two surfers met a baby seal off the coast of England, something special happened.

Surfers Mathew Stanley and Andrew Flounders captured this GoPro footage of a baby seal climbing on his board and playing with them in the water.

It happened off the coast of Northumberland, the pair told the BBC.

“Me and my friend Andrew Flounders were out enjoying some summer waves when this little guy came along and scared the hell out of Andy because we didn’t know what it was! It nudged his foot from underneath,” he explained to YouTube's Insolitevideo.

There isn't any sound in the video, but the amount of cuteness makes up for it.

According to the channel, the two later decided to head back to shore, but the seal tried to follow them up the beach.

“When we got home Andy rang the local marine wildlife authority to make them aware of what occurred just in case the seal was unwell," Stanley said on the site. "He didn’t seem unwell when he was surfing in like a pro!”
