Conner Coffin was surfing at the Margaret River Pro, a World Surf League event, when the pod of at least five dolphins appeared in the barrel of the wave.

"I just got that wave, and then I looked up, and there's a pod of dolphins right by me and a perfect blue set coming," Coffin told News.com. "I thought, 'Oh my God this is insane.' I was really excited."

Coffin was able to edge his competitor and win the round.

"It was insane," 11-time world champion Kelly Slater, who was watching the round, told News.com. "That was one of the coolest things I've ever seen in my life."
