Normally it's sharks that Australian surfers need to watch out for but one young surfer was lucky to escape serious injury from a dolphin.
The mammal leaped out of the wave and straight on top of 13-year-old Jed Gradisen who was surfing near the Western Australia town of Kalbarri.
"The dolphin landed on my shoulder and the back half of my body. The dolphin reacted, I think, really shocked - almost as shocked as I was."
Jed says he was lucky the dolphin jumped so far, so he had a couple of seconds to react.
"I tried to get out of the way and it jumped straight into me, he just dove out of the water and I jumped off my board and tried to get out of the way.Newshub.
