A little boy’s day out in the water is drawing a lot of attention.

Three-year-old Chase Straube recently caught his first wave off Waikiki Beach at the spot known as “Walls.”

“He’s a water baby, he loves the water. He was really excited, you could tell that there was a little hesitation in his face, but he was having fun,” Chase’s father Jacob Straube said.

The video has gained a big following online. So far, it’s been viewed nearly 100,000 on YouTube.

The video was also shared on national TV shows and was featured as GoPro’s Video of the Day.
