As the webcast announcer points out in the video, “It looks like the killer whales have entered the contest arena. We have two killer whales in the contest area, I wonder what the judges are scoring that?”
Two of the surfers remained in the water, while a third can be seen putting his hands over his head and immediately taking the first wave in. He appears to be a little shaken up once he reaches the beach, but no worse for the wear.
It also happened to be the same beach that three-time world champion Mick Fanning rode waves under the Northern Lights back in 2016.
The contest continued as usual, as the Lofoten Masters claims to be the northernmost surf contest in the world. So we’re guessing these sorts of things happen from time-to-time for Norwegian surfers.
