One winter’s day, two old surfing mates decide to ditch work and go for a surf. After all, your worst day in the surf is surely better than your best day at work, right? As they paddle out and begin shredding the perfect offshore conditions (to their surprise) they’re joined in the line-up by a little brown creature with long whiskers, a tail and doe eyes! The two old mates had heard many legendary stories about Sammy the Surfing Seal, yet neither of them ever thought they’d be lucky enough to see him ripping in person! Sammy’s cutbacks, airs and re-entries were better than any professional surfer and his speed, balance and grace left the two old mates rather inspired.

However, just as the surfers and their furry new friend were enjoying the most gnarly surf of their lives, a menacing creature crashes the party! He has an ominous look in his eyes and he is hungry for an entrée and lunch. The two intrepid surfers looked like a tasty morsel indeed! How will the three friends escape? Will this be their last surf together? Or will Sammy the Surfing Seal come up with an audacious plan and save the day?



Brendan has been a primary school teacher and Principal for over 30 years. A large slice of that time was spent teaching Physical Education.

He is a very keen surfer who spends as much time as possible surfing down at Phillip Island and on the Mornington Peninsula with mates and his son Nick. It was down at Phillip Island where the story of ‘Sammy the Surfing Seal’ took place.
