The Gulf Between - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: Bud is lying on a surf board, talking to Flipper. During different camera angles, his position on the board changes. He goes from the middle to almost the top. At the end of the scene, in the wide-shot, he's always to the end of the board. He also goes from being centered with a foot on each side of the board to being on the left-side with just that foot in the water. (00:13:20 - 00:14:20)
