8 Amazing Photos of Talented Surf Dogs Hanging Ten
The 11th Annual Surf Dog-A-Thon hosted by California's Helen Woodward Animal Center took place this past weekend at the dog beach in Del Mar.
Like years past, oodles of water-loving canines, both pros and novices, showed up to show off their skills, riding the waves and even teaching us humans a thing or two.
See all the wet and wild fun that went down!
NO BIG DEAL
Jojo the super corgi embodied the hang loose spirit, cruising through the surf like she was Poseidon's pup.
TEAM WORK MAKES THE DREAM WORK
This pair decided to try their paws at doubles and were an instant succuss.
Added bonus, they both ended the day with beautiful beachy waves in their fur.
PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT
We're not sure whether Roxy was practicing her surf moves or her supermodel moves, but either way she is nailing both in this photo.
Gunnar amazed onlookers by going for a two paw approach on one of his runs down the waves.
While all the dogs proved they rule both surf and turf, a select few were honored for their truly awesome skills.
MAN'S BEST SWIM BUDDY
Good girl Faith received a congratulatory smooch from her human after winning the 1st place award for large dogs and the 2nd place award in the overall competition.
Some went home with medals, others didn't, but every dog went home from the Surf Dog-A-Thon with a smile on his or her face.
