Bethany Hamilton's Son Is Already An Adorable Surfer Baby

Behold, the world's next surfing legend in the making.

It only makes sense that Bethany Hamilton's son would be on a surfboard before he can even walk.

Last week, the shark attack survivor posted a picture of her 6-month-old son Tobias atop a surfboard in the ocean, with the picturesque Hawaiian island of Kauai as the backdrop.

With his surprisingly good form and excited smile, it's pretty clear this kid is already a natural.

Technically, this isn't the first time Tobias has gone surfing.

Hamilton surfed through the first six months of her pregnancy, even competing in one of the most challenging women's surf contests in the world.

"It's such a weird feeling to be in the ocean while my baby is moving around inside me," Hamilton told People Magazine earlier this year.

Ever since Hamilton introduced Tobias to the world in June, she and her new family have had ample beach time -- enough to ensure the little grom's future as a surfing legend.

Below, a peek into their beautiful beach life:
