Practice sessions by San Diego’s premier surfing school, Coronado Surfing Academy, for registered surf dog competitors

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.
$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.
