Crazy Footage of Orcas Hunting Sea Lion's While Surfers Retreat in Tofino

February 23, 2013. Orcas in the lineup near Tofino, BC http://www.adamchilton.com

Adam Chilton was in the right place at the right time in February of this year, 2014. As he was filming some surf action in at a popular break in Tofino, BC, Canada...some orcas moved in hunting sea-lions!!! Needless to say the surfers retreated as anyone who has watched the planet earth series would have. As I watched the Orcas in the video chase down and corral these sea lions I just kept thinking about how much a surfer in a wetsuit mirrors these whiskered mammals. Personally, if I glanced to my right while surfing in Tofino and saw a pod of transient Orcas swimming my way...well, lets just say I'd need to give my wetsuit a very thorough scrubbing. Check it out.
