Surfing canines took the spotlight at the fifth annual Surf City Surf Dog competition in Huntington Beach, California, yesterday.
The dogs, dubbed "sur-furs," competed in four different weight classes, ranging from 20 pounds to over 60 pounds. There was also a special "tandem" category, where the plus-one is either the owner or a second dog. Canine competitors were awarded big points for standing on all fours and for completing the longest or biggest rides.
In the following photos, see how the brave sur-furs got on their boards with the help of their owners and eventually wiped out on their own.
