There’s a pig in Hawaii who can surf, and it’s ridiculously cute.Kamapua’a, or Kama, is Kai Holt’s pet pig. He slipped into Holt’s pool and revealed he could swim, prompting Holt to take the pig surfing, Holt told Hawaii News Now.

“I think he enjoys it,” Holt said. “It seems like he’s having a good time when he’s out there. I think it makes him happy.”

Kama’s so good that Costco is sponsoring him with free surfboards, and other local businesses have chipped in, too, with a free Go Pro camera and clothing.

Follow all the pig-surfing fun on Kama’s Instagram account. You can watch video of Kama surfing, complete with his own theme song, via CBS' story.

Cool, thanks Kama. Time for us to buy surfing lessons.
