Nānākuli lives in Honolulu with his human and has been surfing since he was just a kitten. We're not sure how he lost an eye, but it doesn't seem to slow him down at all! You can watch videos of Kuli in action over on Instagram.
Kuli's owners, Alexandra Gomez and Krista Littleton, tell the Daily Mail that Kuli's been a surfing beach bum for almost a year now. Gomez and Littleton adopted Kuli when he was just 3-months-old and weighed a pretty pound.
Shortly after Kuli's adoption, he had to undergo surgery to remove an infected eye. Gomez and Littleton credit Kuli's clear comfortability with the water as result of his recovery process, which involved frequent bathing.
