Dolphins Crash California Surf Competition, Show Competitors How It's Done

Posted: Updated:

Surfing, it can be argued, was invented by dolphins, and every now and then, the majestic, fun-loving mammals decide to remind us lowly bipeds that they still reign supreme when it comes to catching waves.

This past weekend, a pod of dolphins crashed the Rincon Classic surfing competition in Ventura County, Calif., totally stealing the show and proving their superiority. With roughly a dozen dolphins in the waves, the crowd cheered them on as competitors stopped in their tracks, first to verify that the shadowy beasts weren't sharks and then to watch in awe of their skills.

Dolphins are common in the area, but it's rare that they approach a group of surfers like this.
