Kitesurfer meets whale-head to tail

An Aussie kitesurfer and teacher David Sheridan has a story to tell his students like no other. While kitesurfing over the ocean waves, he noticed a large shadow that he thought came from his kite apparatus. Surprise he found himself skimming above the back of a whale! Apparently the whale was also surprised at the sudden encounter and he flip his tale up and actually hit david in the head-gently!

David had a camera rigged to the top of his kit that caught most of the event.
