Champions have been crowned in the worlds most exciting surfing contest – 15lb. Toy American Eskimo Ziggy becoming the first ever back to back champion.
That’s right, it’s the 10th annual Unleashed Surf Dog competition!
Hosted by PetCo on Imperial Beach in San Diego, the contest had more than 50 participants.
Judging was based on skills, duration of ride, and confidence – clearly allowing for Olympic style scandals of bad judging.
While Ziggy repeated as the small dog champion, a newcomer – golden retriever Kalani – walked away with the large dog championship.
“I taught her how to balance in a kiddie pool when she was eight-months old on a boogie board, the rest of it is Kalani,” the dog’s owner Sandra Lew said.
All proceeds from the event were donated to the San Diego Humane Society and the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA).
