Just a day in the life of a surfer bro. Chasing barrels one minute, and the next, you’re jumping off the board to avoid a landing dolphin with the right of way. Most will say this was a coincidence, but anybody who has ever gotten a shitty look in the wrong beach town knows that the locals can be territorial. Respect the lineup.
Jed Gradisen saw the torpedo-like dolphin coming straight at him and managed to avoid the main brunt of the impact during the recent encounter near the Western Australian town of Kalbarri, according to Daily Mail Australia. And he just dove out of the water and I just jumped off my board and tried to get out of the way.“I was paddling back out, I saw [the dolphins] coming. Oh my God, they were coming straight for me, so I tried to get out of the way and it jumped straight into me. The dolphin reacted, I think, really shocked — almost as shocked as I was.
