Meet Kuli.

Kuli is an adorable kitten who surfs the waves in Hawaii with his owners, roommates and surfers Alexandra Gomez and Krista Littleton. The Daily Mail reports that:

'Kuli started his surf training at four months old after his operation and he was only about six months old that he began surfing.'

'His first time in the water, we just let him float on the board by himself near the shoreline and I would paddle around with him. Before we knew it we were looking for waves to surf.

'For a while I took Kuli out on my long boards, but it wasn't until I was playing around with a boogie board one day that I realised he really loved to get his claws into the foamy material.

'So we bought a board that Kuli would be able to get out on the surf with.'

They think that he became extraordinarily used to being in water because of being bathed all the time, due to his many health issues when he was young, including an eye infection (for which he had to have one eye removed).

Littleton says that the name Kuli is short for Nanakuli, which means "to look blind." He's becoming quite the celebrity and even has his own Instagram.
