Pelicans Are Masters Of Aerodynamics

Recently I was out on the beach and noticed pelicans fly low to the water. When the wave comes up they ride the energy in the curl like a surfer then go up when it crashes. They repeat this using the energy of the wave. Pelicans also fly in formation. Even with 2 pelicans like in this video they clearly use each other to make the task of traveling in the air easier.
