Canines Take the Waves in Surf City Surf Dogs Competition

Over the weekend Huntington Beach, California was the host of a unique surfing competition: the Surf City Surf Dog. Featuring 48 canine surFUR competitors in various weight classes, nearly 1,500 surfing and dog enthusiasts gathered on the shores for the three-day competition. 

Dogs were awarded points for lying on the board, sitting, or standing; additional points were awarded for any animals who did tricks (180s, 360s, riding backwards) and for riding the longest and biggest waves. 

This was the fourth year of the competition and judging by the slew of shore-side fans, it is likely to only keep growing bigger and bigger. 

And why not: dogs riding surfboards, what could be cuter?
