In San Diego shore more than 50 dogs of different breeds came together for the annual dog surfing competition to raise money for the benefit of the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. It was the seventh annual Loews Coronado Bay Resort Surf Dog Competition wherein hundreds of hounds and beach sports enthusiasts attended the event.
They were judged on confidence, their surfing ability and their "sense of fashion." They are scored on their best two waves. The heats are subdivided into three categories: small dogs, large dogs and tandem dogs. Winners receive a special vacation package at the Loews Coronado Bay Resort and snacks for their pets.
