An Australian law requires boats and watercraft to stay at least 30 meters away from whales. No exceptions are made for those aboard a surfboard, but the guys featured in this video take great care of that, encircling a poor cetacean off the coast of Sydney without giving him a chance to move. Australian broadcaster Nine News filmed the whole thing. The surfers were lucky, the whale did not freak out, otherwise the consequences could have been really serious.
