World Dog Surfing Championships 2017

World Dog Surfing Championships at Linda Mar Beach in Pacifica, Calif. on Saturday, Aug. 5, 2017. This was the second tournament held. Organizers are hoping to turn it into an annual event. Hundreds of people attended the event to watch dogs skillfully stay on a surf board.

The two main events were for dogs to surf by themselves and for dogs to surf with their pet parent. Here is a photo of dogs enjoying the waves.
