An Aussie’s Whale of a Tail

The story of an Australian wind surfer getting hit by the tail of a large whale was recently featured on ABC News in America.  The kite surfer David Sheridan was kite surfing off the coast of Valla Beach, New South Wales with a camera mounted to the top of his kite.  The camera took one picture every 10 seconds, so he was able to get a pretty good shot of him surfing above the southern right whale that surfaced near him, but the camera missed taking a picture of him being hit by the whale’s tail.
