Photographer Spots Surfing Orcas in New Zealand

Surfing Orca

While we’re no stranger to dolphins bow riding the wave of our ship, surfing orcas is a new one. When a swell kicked up in New Zealand some locals were on hand with cameras to capture the action. Sea lions, dolphins and plenty of other mammals (including humans) surf, but orcas have rarely been photographed in the act.
