When Matt Stanley and his mate Andrew Flounders went for a surf last week up on the east coast they soon found they had a little friend. The baby seal was really keen to get on board for a few lessons. It even followed the lads up the beach later when they tried to leave!

The seal didn’t seem hurt it literally just wanted to play!
