Burien resident Ethan Janson set up a GoPro camera rig on his windsurf board – anchored off Three Tree Point – and remotely taped some local seal pups as they struggled to climb aboard on a recent winter’s day.

“Newly weaned harbor seal pups make use of my old windsurf board,” Janson said on his YouTube Channel. “I mounted a remote GoPro camera and these posers seemed to know exactly where to perform! It had rained that morning and the slip n’ slide ensued. These condensed clips occurred over a period of about 30 minutes.”

Be sure to watch at 720p and full-screen for the best view:

It appear that Janson use a HydRemote system to tape the pups remotely; more info is available here:
