Surfing Pig Hogs Limelight in Hawaii

This little piggy went to ... surf school? Kama is small, but he sure causes a big scene when he hits the waves. His owner Kai Holt first discovered the piglet's water skills when he fell in the pool and surprisingly started to swim.




Now, the little pig wonder is making a big splash at Hawaii's Sandy Beach. He's catching waves on a surfboard and turning heads. "He really gets off on it - seems like he has a good time out there. I think it makes him happy," Holt laughed.

Kama's unexpected love of the water certainly makes everyone around him happy. 'Definitely the first time I've seen a pig on a board,' a beachgoer said with a smile.

***EXCLUSIVE*** DEL MAR DOG BEACH, CA - UNDATED: AUGUST CALENDAR IMAGE: Gus is a 2 year old English Bulldog who was adopted in March 2011. He took his first surfing lesson in July 2011 at Del Mar Dog Beach and proved to be a natural. Gus is looking forward to next years surfing season. Rather than begging their owners for walkies these extreme dogs prefer to catch a wave as this barking mad charity calendar shows. The beach bum mutts were captured taking to the surf on dog-friendly beaches near San Diego in the US. All the surfing dogs have lifejackets and the calendars producer, Dina Demeo-Grover, confirmed that if the surf gets too much for them the pooches were free to hop off the board and swim back to shore. However, most were having so much fun posing on their surf boards they could not wait for another chance to ride a wave. All money raised from the calendar goes to a variety of charities, whose work includes animal rescue, childrens welfare and aid for senior citizens.

'Sufing is Hawaii's gift to the world. It's like true happiness, you know? That's what this guy does: everywhere he goes he just makes people smile and laugh ... he brings joy to the world."

Kama's skills have attracted so much attention he's even gotten corporate sponsors. Costco supplies free boards, and he gets a GoPro camera from the Bike Factory.

'As long as he lives, he's not going to see the dinner plate, that's for sure.' Holt said.

Kama's on a vegetarian diet so that he stays healthy and doesn't get too big for a surf board.
