There will be 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners for each weight class and the first place winner will move on to the finals. The dog surfing contest takes place at Del Mar Dog Beach
This event will help raise awareness and money for orphaned pets while promoting responsible pet ownership. Interactive sponsor tents will be on site for pet owners and their families, providing lots of fun activities for everyone. Helen Woodward Animal Center will be on site with adoptable dogs and trained professionals to answer any type of animal related question. HWAC will also have an interactive tent with fun games and crafts for children and pets
DOO THE DAH: Surfers decide whether they want to surf on their own or in a team for Doo the Dah for Dogs Human surfing costume contest, or if they want to surf with their pooch in the Surf Dog heat. They then pledge to catch a set number of waves (in a half hour time frame) and solicit friends and neighbors for financial support on behalf of their efforts.
Judges will be on the lookout for the best themed team or individual.
