Surf Doggies! The World Dog Surfing Championships 2018


If you think that surfing is only for humans and they are the only ones who have the right to get wet and wild on the waters. Well, think again. Dogs too can surf. And the amazing part? They have a dog surfing competition.
 
Held annually at the Linda Mar Beach in the Pacifica, the World Dog Surfing Championship is a contest where dogs are the main stars. We are used to seeing real human surfers taking over the waves at the beach, but this time it’s their pet dogs that will compete for the fame, the prize and the glory that comes with it. 
 
This free event will not only showcase dogs’ surfing talent, it will also present a number of activities with, of course, the dogs as the main characters of the said show. Lined-up activities are Dog Wellness Fair, Dog Fashion Show to name a few. Hundreds of people flock Linda Mar Beach just to see dogs ride a surfboard. 
 
Last year, for its 2nd surfing championship, the competition was held on August 6, 2017. There are over 36 amateur and experienced dog surfers who participated in the said event. In the end, Abbie was awarded as the winner for Top Surf Dogs Award category, besting other dogs in the competition.
 
Come and be part of this one-of-a-kind event this August 4, 2018, from 9am to 2pm at Linda Mar Beach, Pacifica. Bring your family, friends and pet dogs in a day of fun surfing under the sun.
