What Big Teeth You Have


Maybe I’m just a big wuss, but if I were to go surfing and there were killer whales hanging out right by the huge waves, I’m calling it a day, no matter how good the surf is. I guess that’s what makes New Zealander Craig Hunter and I different. Instead of being dissuaded by a large male orca and two calves he swam out and surfed for about 45 minutes.

“There was no way I was going in because the waves were too good,” Hunter said, adding that this was not the first time he had surfed with an orca. He said he was too old to be bothered by the possibility of being attacked.

“My outlook is they are big enough and quick enough. If they thought I was a seal, I’d be long gone.

“It’s pretty awesome. It’s a pretty special sort of feeling. I was out there on my own for quite a while and the big fella was just cruising. It was really neat.”
