    Whale Takes Surfer For a Ride

    SAN CLEMENTE, Calif. -- A surfer says the swell he was riding on a recent trip turned out to be more than just a wave -- it was a whale.

    You're welcome, Cass. The story made my day...I have always dreamed of making some type of contact with a whale.

    Did you ever see the movie, "Whale Rider"? It's really beautiful.

    No I have not seen it.. have seen all the free willys though

    I was just on an alaskan cruise in the summer... saw all kinds of whales - I swear when their tails would come up - it would be so emotional - made me want to cry. They are incredibly beautiful animals and gentle.

    Closest I have come to anything like you describe is at Discovery Cove in Orlando when my daughter and I swam with a dolphin
