Photos of Dogs That Can Surf Better Than You

Over the weekend, more than 50 surfing dogs attended the Unleashed by Petco Surf Dog Competition that was held at Imperial Beach, CA. Surf Dogs who entered the competition were judged by professional surfer and pet parent, Taylor Knox. Proceeds of the event benefited San Diego Humane Society and SPCA.

I personally have never tried surfing, but it doesn't look easy! These fierce canine competitors make it look super simple though. Maybe it's because they have the advantage of having four legs? ;) 


Human + dog surfing at the same time = awesome. 


I bet this dog will have some cool footage from that camera strapped to her back. 


This English Bulldog named Lola is really in the zone. She looks focused and ready to wow the crowd with her surfing skills! She's on Instagram and Facebook if you want to follow her. 


And speaking of the crowd at the Unleashed by Petco Surf Dog Competition, here's what it looked like out there. 


Special thanks to Unleashed by Petco for letting us share these fun photos on our blog today. I never knew that so many surfing dogs existed! Also, our friend Sugar the Golden Retriever got to attend this fun event in pawson and we watched on Periscope. You can read more about it on her blog too. 

Have you ever watched a dog surf before?

    1. Thank you for commenting and letting me know where I can find her at! Petco sent over a few media photos, but I unfortunately do not know who any of the pets are. Going to find her over there and will edit this with her info too. She is awesome!

  9. The photos look like a fun day was had by both two and four legs. I too have never surfed, so I have mad respect for anyone who does.

  10. We thought most of the dogs looked kind of scared so weren't real fans of this. Love Dolly

    1. I kind of got that vibe from a few of them. But who knows. It could be the crowd or just a face of determination?
