I love Imperial Beach and nothing marks the start of summer more than the fisrt dog surfing event of the year in Imperial Beach as the Loews Resort Coronado marks its 6th annual event with barking canines, surfboards, dog owners, kids, camera men and thousands of onlookers cruise out to see the surfing dogs ride waves into the shore.

Each dog/team has 10 minutes to catch their top two waves, and is scored on confidence level, length of ride and overall ability to “grip it and rip it.” The Coronado Surfing Academy provides surf boards and assistance during the competition.

If your dog’s a surfing champion, you’ll score a ton of great prizes, including the ultimate pet vacation at Loews Coronado Bay Resort … and endless bragging rights.

Competition Fees:
$50 for Divisions One or Two, $55 for Division Three. Fees also include a competition medal and a great goody bag filled with treats. All proceeds benefit the resort’s non-profit partner. General admission is free.
