The mighty orca, the very beast our publishing house is named after, might have the slightly terrifying moniker of ‘killer whale’ but they don’t kill people. Seals yes. They slay those furry nuggets with abandon … but in the wild they don’t bite folk.

That isn’t the most comforting thought when one is having a chew on your stand up paddle board. Props to Lukas Reilly for keeping his cool and appreciating an inquisitive moment from one of the true wonders of the marine world. As for whether the boardshorts were brown afterwards remains to be seen.
