Surf photographer Brent Bielmann was on a trip in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico with the company Body Glove when he captured something incredible that had actually nothing to do with surfing whatsoever.
What he captured was a massive and hungry sea lion who had hitched a ride on the back of a nearby fishing boat. According to Bielmann, he filmed the video a few weeks ago when he was taking a boat from Lovers Beach back into town. The video currently has been viewed over 750,000 times and has thousands of people talking.
And according to comments left on GrindTV and Bielmann’s Instagram pages, the sea lion in the video appears to be “Pancho,” a local celebrity of sorts in Cabo who has been known to beg boaters for fish. Looks as though Pancho is up to his tricks again and that’s exactly what he is doing here. Once he is given his fishy treat, he jumps off the boat back into the ocean.
