Whales and Waves Combine to Make Epic Surfing Video Starring 11-Year-Old Prodigy

An 11-year-old surfing prodigy, Kalama Jedidiah Stratton, was doing his thing recently at Hawaii's Waimea Bay, with his dad recording his expert moves. As an added bonus, a pair of breaching whales in the background completed an epic shot. "Stratton, who hails from Puerto Escondido, Mexico, is absolutely sending it in the couple waves above at the legendary big-wave spot, Waimea. And not just for someone who just entered middle school. That goes for surfers across the age spectrum," https://www.surfer.com/trending-news/11-year-old-surfs-giant-waimea-bay-breaching-whales Surfer said about the clip. The video was shot by https://www.instagram.com/jarredelika/ Jarred Elika Stratton , who is also a surfer. (Footage by Jarred Elika Stratton/Storyful via Getty Images UGC)
