The 6th Annual Loews Coronado Bay Resort Surf Dog Competition was held Saturday in San Diego, California, as “ruffly” 50 canines vied for the title of the world’s most adorable surfer. Hundreds of people gathered to witness the event, as the dogs were dressed in Hawaiian shirts, leis, and sunglasses while surfing both solo and with their owners. This year’s big winner was an Australian Kelpie named Abbie Girl, and it was her second time winning the event. She’s a regular Kelly Slater. You know, if Kelly were a dog. And female. Whatever, it’s Monday.
You may remember last year’s tribute to surfing dogs set to quotes from Point Break, and while it’s hard to recreate that kind of magic, I am simply happy that we finally have a sport that consistently produces a quality product without stirring up controversies about criminal behavior, drug use and womanizing. However, I can’t help but think that a sport in which all of the females are fixed might be a great place for Travis Henry to make a comeback.
