    Surfing team tryouts in California were interrupted by a four-legged friend who apparently wanted to get in on the fun.

    Surfers at Southern California's Dana Point were shocked when a deer rushed into the ocean Thursday morning. One surfer had to kick his board out and bail out of a wave when the animal suddenly appeared in front of him.

    [NATL] New 'Soundwave' Tattoos Can Talk, Play Music

    What if tattoos could talk? That's what Nate Siggard, CEO and founder of Skin Motion, is trying to do with his soundwave tattoo app. It works like this: users can upload sounds and voices to the app, creating a waveform of the audio. They can print out these waveforms and have them turned into tattoos. They can point their mobile phone or tablet device at the tattoo and use the app to play back the sound.

    "They were just getting midway through their surf heat and out of nowhere this deer comes trotting down the shoreline," Mike Foudy, whose son Cole was the surfer with the near-deer experience, told The Associated Press.

    Foudy posted video of the dogpaddling deer, which he said appeared spooked, on his Facebook page.

    Tryout judge Sheri Crummer told the Orange County Register that no one knew where the deer came from. It hopped over rocks and then went off to sea.

    Surf team coach Tim Samson paddled out about a quarter of a mile and herded the deer back to shore, where it took off toward a hotel.
