It’s a good thing dolphins are notoriously friendly toward humans, so this wakeboarder could surf easy knowing her sizable dolphin escort meant no harm.

This amazing YouTube video taken in the Sea of Cortez really demonstrates how playful these super-smart mammals can be. Dolphins are known to “play” with boats of all sizes, and have even been known to assist humans in danger of drowning.

According to Wyatt Miller, who uploaded the video, this was “one of the top three afternoons of my life.” We’d be interested in hearing about the other two!
