"The owner of the Labrador was throwing her flip-flop into the ocean for the dog to retrieve," the filmer wrote online.

"This time round, the flip-flop was quite far out and the dog needed some encouraging whistles and yells to swim out to it."

"Eventually the dog finds the flip-flop and then swims back to shore.

The dog seemed to enjoy catching the waves," he added.
