Jumping dolphin knocks paddleboarder into water

A paddleboarder in Gracetown, Western Australia, was heading away from shore when suddenly he came face-to-face with a pod of dolphins that were surfing an approaching wave. They were heading straight for him.

An instant later, one of the dolphins is seen leaping out of the water and knocking the paddleboarder, identified as Andrew Hill, off his board and into the water.

It almost looked as if the dolphin had done it on purpose.

The video licensor explained to ViralHog: “Waiting to film surfers when Lucas [Englert] noticed a pod of dolphins that appeared to be chasing fish. The pod of about 20 dolphins then turned to catch a wave, when one dolphin jumped out of the water and knocked Stand Up Paddle Boarder Andrew Hill off his board with a nice bump!”

A nice bump, indeed.
