Awesome!!! One of the Orcas's was huge and there were 2 pups as well. Unfortunately its hard to see on this downsized video from my iPhone but you may get the vibe and trust me it was a buzz to watch even at distance. 20 secs in just near the seagull. Went over to Pakiri with Roparta to check out how good it would be for windsurfing and were greeted with great surf conditions and Orcas cruising the waves amongst the surfers. One episode, the big ones dorsal fin was vibrating above the wave because of the speed he was going. Was just amazing to see how pumped up they got as they swam along the line of swell behind the wave and then turned and put on the power to get into the wave amongst the surfers then down the line and back out the back for the next one. Set waves were big enough to see through and get the full pic. A perfect 10. Regretted I didn't have my big camera gear or better still was not out there on my paddle board.
