2012 Loews Coronado Bay Resort Surf Dog Competition

Over 50 dogs of all sizes gathered along the San Diego shore for an intense day of competitive surfing on Saturday. The event drew in hundreds of local citizens as well as dog surfers from across the United States. The 7th annual dog surfing competition, officially known as the Loews Coronado Bay Resort Surf Dog Competition, has become one of the most unique events in Southern California, sparking a growing movement for dog surfing across the globe. Dogs compete in ten minute heats and are scored on their best two waves. The heats are subdivided into three categories - small dogs, large dogs and tandem dogs. Judges look for confidence in the four legged surfers as well as a long wave ride and a good sense of fashion. (Courtesy of The Telegraph)
