Video: Freerider Couple Ride Along With Pod of Dolphins


A couple handholds in a lightweight hood. A Hydro-Turf chin pad. A custom air brushed paint job. Yup. All signs of a cool freeride ski. But what was unexpected for this couple taking their skis out to the surf was the company they would share. Leaving out of the breakwater in San Diego, the two freeriders – equipped with helmet-mounted GoPros – were joined by a pod of dolphins including a couple babies.

As reported by San Diego-affiliate CBS 8, “A San Diego couple out to jet ski in the bay Sunday got the surprise of a lifetime. The pair came across a large pod of dolphins who traveled and played in the jet ski’s wake. In the video, you can see the dolphins swimming directly below the jet ski and the couple tells us one of the more playful baby dolphins even jumped out of the water.”
