Surfer Almost Devoured By Humpback Whale [VIDEO]

Humpback Whales Lunge Feeding

The woman in this video thinks she’s out for a relaxing surf. Everything changes when she comes extremely close to a giant humpback whale who just happens to breach right next to her and almost swallows her whole. 

According to the video’s description, the whales are engaging in “lunge feeding,” which is “when whales herd anchovies and shoot straight up out of the water with their mouth wide open to catch the fish.” So the surfer almost became a human anchovy.

Her friend notes that they’ve never paddled out this far before. It’s safe to say they won’t make the same mistake twice.

Watch the video below and then try to forget about it before next summer comes around.
