Zorro, The Surfing Pig

By  | 

Like other pigs, Zorro can't fly. But with the help of owner Matthew Bell, he sure can ride waves.

The two-month-old pig has been trotting to the beach with Matt since he was 3-weeks-old, and although he doesn't like big surf, he loves being in the water

"He's a phenomenal swimmer," Matt says.

The family pet is a mix between a wild boar, kunekuke, domestic pig and socialite.
Matt says, "He's extremely friendly so he likes to visit children, grandparents, anyone really. Anyone that wants to give him a pat, he'll go up and say hello."

So what does the future hold for the surfing sensation?

"We'll keep surfing until he gets to a size where he's unmanageable, and yah, see what happens after that," says Matt.

But for now Zorro will continue to hang hoof.
