The surfing dogs of California

Every year on the beaches of California dogs get off the streets and into the sea to surf the waves and compete in the Loews Coronado Bay Resort Surf Dog Comeptition. According to the organizers website each dog had 10 minutes to catch his or her top two waves and is scored on confidence level, length of ride and overall ability to “grip it and rip it.” Winners score the ultimate pet vacation at Loews Coronado Bay Resort and endless bragging rights. If you want to see some of the coolest pictures from this year’s competition visit the guardian online.
