Surfing Goes to the Dogs

28 May

Dog Surfin’ Safari

Who knew that dogs liked to ride around on surfboards just as much as they liked to ride in cars.

The crowd that attended the Fifth Annual Loews Coronado Bay Resort Surf Dog Competition discovered the surfing phenomenon in person when over 50 dogs hit the water at Imperial Beach, California.

The competition included three different heats: small dogs, large dogs, and tandem (Bobby Gorgeous the Pomeranian pictured above competed in the small dogs category).

Dogs had 10 minutes to prove their skills while judges evaluated the length of their ride, their confidence, and whether they could “grip and rip.

The Surf Dog Competition, which is part of the Loews Loves Pets program, has become a successful fundraiser for local pet-related charities. With such awesome dogs in cute little harnesses to keep them safe, that’s not surprising!
