The Dog Surfing World Championships takes place on the NorCal coast — where the concept for the sport originated with big thanks to the book that started it all – The Dog’s Guide to Surfing – bringing together dog surfing talent for charity. Dog surfers are invited to bring home the gold.

4th Annual World Dog Surfing Championships
Saturday, August 3, 2019 | 9 am to 2 pm
Linda Mar Beach, Highway 1 and Linda Mar Blvd., Pacifica
FREE to watch; $10 to enter your pups

During the event, there will be a number of activities including the surf competition, a ball-in-water fetch contest, frisbee catch contest, partner tents and activities, and more.

Entrants also receive a VIP Gift Bag, with items such as dog treats, snacks, and more.

The Norcal World Dog Surfing event celebrates the best in the sport, but this event is not only for sport and for fun. It’s also for great causes, like Rocket Dog, the Peninsula Humane Society. A portion of proceeds go to dog, surfing and environmental non-profits.
