Surfing goats spotted in California

SAN DIEGO, July 12 (UPI) -- California beach-goers were surprised to see two goats riding the waves on a tandem surfboard in San Diego.

Goat owner Dana McGregor, from Pismo Beach, met up with tandem surfing duo Mark and Debbie Gale Wednesday to see if his goats, Goatee and Pismo, would get on a surfboard together, The Orange County (Calif.) Register reported.

"They look pretty happy. Thinking this is going to be a little bit easier than surfing with the wife," Mark Gale said of the challenge.

McGregor has been bringing the goats surfing for a while now, but has never put them on the same board. On Wednesday the pair of goats had a few rides together before Goatee, the older one, swam to shore.

"Oh my gosh. That was hilarious. I never thought I'd see the day," said surfer Po Carbal, 22. "Goats on a surfboard -- I've seen it all. I think it's probably one of the oddest and coolest things I've ever seen at the beach."
