Big wave pro surfer, Jamie Mitchell, who has ridden sixty foot waves off the CA coast, recently had a up close and personal meeting with a pod of whales.
This is not something most surfers get to see unless they also enjoy getting out on a stand up paddle board as well. This 8X World Paddleboarding champion witnessed the enormous mammals coming up for air not far from his paddleboard while Jamie was being filmed for a new t.v show called “Living in Liquid”. Even Jamie had to admit that he was a little stunned when they surfaced so close to his board.
Long before the stand up paddle phenom blew up in San Diego, Jamie Mitchell was already killing it out there and dominating the paddleboarding pack. The Australian has won the Molokai to Oahu race for ten years running.
