The waves were looking “ruff” at the second annual World Dog Surfing Championships, held on Saturday at Linda Mar Beach in Pacifica, California. Wait, what? Yes, this is a thing. The website describes the event as “the premier dog surfing event in Northern California and the San Francisco Bay Area, from the historic team that conceived & pioneered the concept of dog surfing competitions!” We are witnessing history here, folks. Gather ’round.
As far as we can tell, the point of this is mainly to take in the hilarious and all-too-rare sight of dogs on surfboards. It’s for a good cause, though — while attending the event is free, hopeful doggos (and their humans) are encouraged to fundraise for local charities, and a portion of the proceeds go to dog, surfing and environmental nonprofits.
