Killer Whale Nibbles Paddle Board in Close Encounter with Surfer [VIDEO]

An orca gave a stand-up paddleboarder quite a startling experience when it nudged and nibbled the end of his board.

I’m surprised that this guy maintained the presence of mind to keep filming as a killer whale came up from below his paddleboard, followed him for a bit and then opened its toothy maw to take a test nibble from the end of the board.

It didn’t last long, but as the curious orca swam away the fellow turned the camera on himself and clearly had his adrenaline pumping.

What do you suppose the orca was thinking? What do you suppose the paddleboarder was thinking?
