If you haven't noticed by now it's Monday, and we have a case of the Mondays. For those of you looking for a small distraction from the Monday grind, here's a video that has surfaced on Reddit. Matt Stanley and Andrew Flounders were surfing in Northumberland and made a new friend. This curious seal decided to join them and try to ride the waves because he thought he was people. All the footage was captured on Stanley's GoPro.

From Daily Mirror:
This one nudged Andrew's foot in the water and started getting curious."

The seal climbed on their boards but struggled to stay on for long.

"It kept sliding off, but every time you caught a wave it would surf in on the white water," said Stanley.

"I admit we lost interest in the surfing for a bit. I've never seen a seal that close up, never mind one sitting on board.
