Surfer gets surprise of his life when dolphin jumps onto his board

It’s not all fun and games in the water. Junior surfing champion Jed Gradisen got a huge surprise while surfing off the west coast of Australia when a dolphin jumped out of the water and landed directly on his board. Thankfully, Jed’s father was there to capture the startling moment on camera. “I think it was just an accident that the dolphin jumped on me,” Jed said to local news station KABC. “It was just as amazed as I was.” Luckily, Jed was not seriously hurt and insisted the experience wouldn’t keep him out of the water. Surf on, Jed. We’ll be on the beach. BONUS: Summer’s almost over! Can you find the hot dogs among the Instagrams of people’s legs? art by @ambardelmoral A photo posted by Mashable Watercooler (@watercooler) on Sep 2, 2016 at 6:37am PDT…
