The 9th Annual Surf City Surf Dog (SCSD) event surfing competition was held this weekend. It was a fun-filled three-day celebration.
Surf City Surf Dog Event
Day 1: Pooch Pawty
The 9th Annual McKenna Subaru SCSD three-day celebration, kicked off last Friday, September 22nd at Huntington Beach Bella Terra. Fun fashion show, with Lorna Jane Activewear and rescue dogs. San Diego’s Labrashark provided all the dogs with their pawsome “shark fin” costume.
Day 2: Surf Dog Competition and surFUR Expo
Seventy surf dogs tackled 1-3 foot wave of Huntington Beach. This year, I noticed several new surf dogs. They competed in six different categories, and they were amazing. Dog surfing is an absolute team sport; trust and human-canine bond play significant roles. Congratulations to everyone. I’ll be sharing more about the ‘surfing dog competition event’ on an upcoming post. After the surfing dog competition, an outdoor movie event was held at Pacific City featuring a film from the NY Dog Film Festival.
Day 3: SUP with your Dog
Pirate Coast Paddle Company hosted a fun post comPetition SUP with your dog. It’s KORU BEAR’s first time on a paddleboard, and he did a pawsome job.
This year, Surf Dog Events had six charitable pawtners. Partial event proceeds and all fundraising benefited these pawsome organizations: Barks of Love, French Bulldog Rescue Network, Huntington Dog Beach, OC SPCA, Southern California Golden Retriever Rescue, and Westie Rescue of Orange County & Beyond.
