Wipe out! One of the mice loses control of his board – but trainer Shane Wilmott claimed there was nothing to fear, as mice can swim
Steady: The mice do need a bit of help getting started on each wave from trainer Shane Wilmott, above, being unable to paddle with their tiny paws
Crowds often gather in amazement to watch the tiny surfers do their thing.
