A dead whale washed ashore at Ocean Beach in San Francisco early Monday, and its massive carcass is now spread across a stretch of sand frequented by a steady stream of joggers, dog walkers and surfers . Whale carcasses that land on beaches in more urban areas can draw crowds.

A California surfer out riding the waves with his GoPro camera captured footage of his close encounter with a gray whale passing through the surf lineup. This gray whale was recorded passing through a line of surfers at Silver Strand State Beach in Coronado, Calif.

The group of surfers don't appear to notice the massive mammal coming towards them until it's right under their feet. 

One surfer got spooked by the easy moving whale and quickly paddled away.

Landaas, who was filming from a distance, wasn't able to warn the surfers of the oncoming whale. 

He said: 'I thought it was pretty crazy.'

The whale makes it through the crowd without any incidents and continues on its journey. 

Capt. Corey Hall of the Dana Wharf Sportfishing & Whale Watching told KTLA that gray whales are gentle wouldn't likely cause a fuss. 

He said: 'Gray whales are pretty docile, known as the friendly whale, so they just kind of do their own thing.
