Meet Zorro, the surfing pig
Thu, 07 Mar 2013 6:39p.m.
Like other pigs, Zorro can't fly. But with the help of his owner Matthew Bell he sure can ride waves.
The two-month-old has been trotting to Mt Maunganui beach with Mr Bell since he was three weeks old.
Zorro doesn't like the surf when it gets too big.
“He gets a bit scared when it gets double overhead, and double overhead isn't that big for a pig,” says Mr Bell.
But his owner says he loves being in the water
“Oh, he's a phenomenal swimmer.”
The family pet is a mix between wild boar, kunekuke, domestic pig and socialite.
“He's extremely friendly so he likes to visit children, grandparents, anyone really – anyone that wants to give him a pat, he'll go up and say hello.”
So what does the future hold for the surfing sensation?
“We'll keep surfing until he gets to a size where he's unmanageable, and see what happens after that.”
But for now he'll just continue hanging hooves.
Watch the video from SunLive to see Zorro catch a wave.
