While some people might think taking such a young baby surfing was a tad on the dangerous side, comments after Jorge's video on Vimeo were overwhelmingly positive.

Many described the footage as 'awesome' while one wrote: "Great father. Loving father. Lucky baby. That boy's gonna become a natural in the water.

"Enjoy the blissful joy of surfing probably for the entirety of his life, something that will remain "foreign" and even "supernatural" for the vast majority of humanity, less fortunate humanity. Lucky, lucky boy.

"The most important decision, by far, that any individual ever makes in his/her life, is the "choice" of parents."

Water way to go!
