CALIFORNIA - On Sep 29, 2013, the sun, surf, and sand set many tails-a-wagging at the fifth annual Surf City Surf Dog Competition in Huntington Beach, California.
Canines big and small charmed the audience, donning quirky costumes or miniature life jackets. Most of the surfer dogs hopped onto their surfboards with their canine friends or owners, but a particular dog preferred his rubber ducks for company.
Some dogs wagged their tails and looked confident riding the waves. Several others had trouble keeping their paws on their surfboards and 'wiped out' in hilarious poses. A couple of competitors even collided into each other's surfboards during the intense competition.
After the rigorous workout on the waves, a dog leapt into his owner's arms while others shook out their wet locks or had themselves toweled dry by their owners.
