A Family Of Pigs Are Showing Surfers How It's Done
Sporting history is peppered with famous families - we've got the Nevilles, the Williams sisters and the Charltons - to name but three.
And now it's time to make way for another: Kamapua'a - or Kama the surfing pig - caused quite a storm in 2014 when he showed off his board skills on the Hawaiian island of Oahu. A mere two years after his surfing debut, he moved aside to make way for his son, Kama 2.
And as the GoPro evidence shows, surfing ability is something that certainly seems to run in the family because Kama 2 is a natural on the waves, just like his dad.
His owner Kai Holt told local news station KITV that a pig's surfing shelf life is around one year. "By the time the world gets a load of the first one, a year has already gone by," he said.

The good news is Kama 2 is the proud father of a little female piglet called (imaginatively) Kama 3. Will she be as good as her dad and granddad? Only time will tell but with genes like hers, it seems a safe bet.
