Well I've got proof that surfers aren't the first to use this technique. However, perhaps it should be called "Goose Diving" [Quick Internet search to make sure this term isn't already in use as something untoward... OK, good; it's safe to use.] This Brant goose in San Diego Bay shows particular adeptness at Duck Diving.
