Only in California, right? This month marked the 7th Annual Loews Dog Surfing Competition which was held at Dunes Park Beach in Imperial Beach, California on June 16th. Dogs from all around came together to compete in 4 different heats — for surfing!
The event drew over 50 competitive dogs who were broken up into Small Dogs, Large Dogs, Tandem and the Ultimate Champion Round. Thousands of spectators from all over the country watched each dog take their 10 minute turn to catch the waves.
This event also broke into the Guinness Book of World Records for “the most amount of dogs surfing on one board at one time.” The money raised from this competition went to help support the The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.
