The owner of a restaurant had the scare of his life last week when he was stand up paddle boarding in the Coromandel Peninsula in New Zealand. An orca approached, swam for five minutes beside the man, and then suddenly bit his surfboard. Afterwards, the whale swam away. The scenes were filmed with a camera attached to the board.

The New Zealander said he saw other orcas diving nearby, but did not imagine that one would get so close. According to the NGO Whale Rescue, the aquatic species, which are naturally curious, live in the region.
