While out for a merry kayak off the coast of New Zealand, Kyle Mulinder didn't realise he was heading for the fright of his life.
In his video, a rascal seal flings an octopus at Kyle!
It was luckily all caught on camera - wrong place, right time indeed!

Wrong place, right time. ðŸ˜‚ Yes I got slapped in the face with an octopus by the seal! I know crazy right. Here’s the story. Last weekend I was out testing the new #GoProHero7 with @kaikourakayaks and my mate @taiyomasuda. After a fun paddle around the peninsula catching waves we spotted a giant male seal fighting an octopus. Before we knew it the fight came to us and well the rest is slap to the face ðŸ˜‚ I’m not sure who got more of a surprise the seal, the octopus or me. Either way the octopus held onto the bottom of kayak for some time before our guide was able to get it off with his paddle then it swam away to fight another day. True story. #GoPro #Kaikoura #Hero7Black #GoProANZ
