A pet duck caught some waves at a popular beach in Rainbow Bay, Gold Coast, on January 19.
Sally Eeles filmed a video that shows a duck drifting calmly on the waves among staring onlookers.
“Come on, Duck,” a woman can be heard speaking in the video.
Eeles told Storyful that the duck, aptly named Duck, was “a popular sight at Rainbow Bay.” According to a news report, the duck was a pet of local residents Kate Mille and son Tom Thomson.
“When he’s had enough of swimming, he’ll surf back to the beach on his own and wait on the sand for his ‘people’,” Eeles told Storyful. Credit: Sally Eeles via Storyful
