A Duck Diving Goose

"Duck Diving" is a technique surfers use to dive through oncoming waves.

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.

First: Face the oncoming wave.
Brant "Duck Diving"
Second: Dive head first under the wave.
Of course, the Brant doesn't have a surf board. And it's hard to get completely submerged when you float like a cork. But it is definitely the Duck Dive.
