Whale Almost Swallowed Surfer in Santa Cruz
“Woman floating on a surfboard near Santa Cruz, California almost ended up on the lunch menu for a humpback whale over the weekend,” reads the caption of the video posted to YouTube.
The video shows a surfer and two people in a kayak floating off the shore in California. Seconds later, two massive humpback whales emerged from the water in search of food only a few feet away from them.
The group wasn’t harmed by the encounter but clearly shaken up, as you can see the surfer quickly paddling away from the whales as soon as they appear.
