Surfing Goat Hits The Waves In Latest Video Sensation

A surfing goat is the latest internet sensation after the cheekily-named ‘Goatee’ took to waves on Grover beach in California.

Swimmers thought that surfers were kidding around when they put the silly billy on a board. But the feisty animal took the challenge by the horns and milked the experience for all it was worth.

Originally Goatee had been brought to get rid of weeds in her owners' garden. Her owner Dayna Mcgregor said: "She did pretty well, she got up on a couple of waves. I say got up - we put her on a couple of waves. "

It won't be the last unusual animal riding the surf at Huntington Beach which hosts an annual dog-surfing contest. Have a look at some more surf critters below.
