For this surfer dude mouse, skateboarding came naturally.

Over the last 10 years, Shane Willmott has gained fame by teaching his pet mice to surf.

But the little rodents didn’t have a wintertime hobby, so Willmott adapted their talents to skateboarding.

"They love it," he said. "Mice are built to surf and skate because their center of gravity is so low. When they do fall off, they want to get straight back on board."

Willmott even constructed a mini skateboard park in his backyard, where the mice perform. Gnarly, dude.
