Dogs Surf for a Cause

Dozens of dogs went on a surfing safari Saturday at the sixth annual Loews Coronado Bay Resort Surf Dog competition held in San Diego sparkling Imperial Beach.

This year’s event had some pretty cool dogs “hanging ten” in the 58 degree ocean water. The contest featured a variety of breeds ranging from a Shi-Tzu mix, to a Bulldog, all the way up to a Golden Retriever. More than 60 dogs from across the country took part in the competition where they had 10 minutes to catch two decent 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.

The winner of the small dog division was an Australian Kelpie named Abbie and the large dog division was taken by a Golden Retriever named Kalani, aka Lil Surfer Girl. The tandem event was won by Zoey, a Jack Russell Terrier who surfed alongside her owners’ Scott and Tyler Chandler. The second place seat went to the So Cal Surf Dogs, 5 dogs whose tandem ride on the surfboard set a new record.

Winners of the competition receive a special vacation package at the Loews Coronado Bay Resort. All profits from the competition are donated to, an online forum which provides a space for public teachers in San Diego to request and receive funding for school supplies from private sponsors.
