This Video This Man Captured Whilst Surfing Will Have You Shaking In Your Boots!

Sometimes when you’re out paddle boarding, you might see a rather big fish, or a pretty coloured fish, or maybe even a Dolphin if you’re very lucky. But how often do you meet arguably the most dangerous animal in the sea? Well, Lukas Reilly uploaded a video to YouTube that shows him paddleboarding innocently along when something absolutely huge makes him start recording with his GoPro!

Yes, that’s right. Lukas turned to see an Orca swimming below the surface of his paddle boat, clearing knowing he’s there. Now, let’s run through the video very quickly!

As you can see, the Orca starts by swimming right underneath his paddle boat which would terrify anybody, let alone somebody standing up on such an easily tippable piece of wood.

The huge killer whale then surfaces and looks to go and actually take a nibble out of the back of Reilly’s paddle board!

Luckily, the Orca doesn’t take anything more than a nibble as he realises the paddle board probably doesn’t taste too good.

However, you’ve got to think how lucky Reilly was that this was one of the rare cases where this Orca wasn’t part of a larger group of Orcas as they usually swim around as a family and hunt things that way.

Orcas, despite being called “Killer whales” are actually a part of the dolphin family and males can often grow up to 7-9 metres long (23 to 30 feet). And they can weigh in excess of 6 tonnes. This is certainly a fish that you don’t want to be squished under at any point in your life. Not that that’s a likely occurrence.

The largest killer whale ever on record was 9.8m (32 ft.) and weighed over 10 tonnes. That’s one humongous fish! In comparison, a Great White Shark, often considered the most dangerous fish in the sea only reach around 6.4m long making the Killer Whale a good 2-3 metres larger!

Anyway, we think Lukas Reilly was very lucky to escape today with just a once-in-a-lifetime spotting rather than anything else!
