That is intense.  I got a little concerned for you there around 2:14ish, with one underneath you, really checking you out  : ) 

How was the filming done?

So nice.
They are coming back to our Howe Sound here too but they seem to prefer week-days instead of week-ends so I keep missing them  :'(
The sea lions and the seals might not be so happy about it...

Awesome and scary. They gave you more than the once over.
It's not overhead to me!

That's some seriously sweet Orca action!
One could go into a mall in Kansas and ask a teenager "What is a surfer looking for?, and the answer will always be, "The perfect wave"

Everytime the big male passed under me he had rolled upside down...maybe to avoid striking me with that tall dorsal fin? Or maybe just to get closer to check me out. I could easily have reached down and scratched his belly as he passed under. Glad he didn't give me a tail slap! :)

Good golly, I would have shat myself being that close to them, and thinking they're smart enough to flip me into the water for a noontime snack if they were so inclined. That opening scene of one coming at you from each direction to check things out...ruh roh, no thanks, the view from the drone was/is close enough for me. :-\

This is so cool!
I hope I get to see them out in the bay one day here.

RAD!
