    A surfer says the swell he was riding on a recent trip turned out to be more than just a wave ? it was a whale. Spyros Vamvas, a 60-year-old San Clemente therapist, felt the ocean swirl under him and was lifted up by the giant mammal. "All of a sudden I just felt, wow, this huge noise and bump," said Vamvas, "and it lifted my board up. I'm looking down, and there's just swirling water and I see barnacles on the back of the whale. I'm used to dolphins. This was different. It was huge." Witnesses at Lasuen Beach began yelling.Vamvas had no idea how big the whale was. Others on the beach guessed between 15 feet to 30 feet long, meaning the whale was likely a juvenile. Vamvas said the whale lifted him gently. Those who saw the incident said that after setting Vamvas back onto the water, the whale turned and headed out toward the open sea.
