On a sailing trip down the East Coast we came across many pods of juvenile dolphins enthusiastically 'surfing the bow' like a squadron of fighter jets, peeling off and rejoining the lead. On this occasion however, a single old lone dolphin bearing many battle scars and a torn dorsal fin put on a true exhibition. Like an experienced surfer cruising on a longboard, this Old Warrior was full of style and grace as he eased his way above and below the water surface and used the bow's wake like a seasoned pro.
