Surfer Nearly Swallowed By WhaleSurfer Nearly Swallowed By Whale, A surfer and a couple of kayakers almost became a snack of an enormous whale off the coast of California, a video posted on YouTube shows.

The video, posted by Barb Roettger shows the surfer and kayak paddling in relatively calm waters, when suddenly a humpback whale breaches between Roettger and surfing and kayaking. Just before the whale breaks, hundreds of small fish can be seen jumping out of water.

“A group of humpback whales has been off the coast of Santa Cruz, anchovies noshing coming to the area to feed on crustaceans,” Roettger wrote on YouTube. “The woman in the middle of a feeding frenzy called thrust, which occurs when the anchovies herd whales and shoot up out of the water with its mouth open to catch the fish.”
