Fun in the Sun with Surf City Surf Dog

If you find yourself in the Huntington Beach area this weekend, make sure you check out Surf City Surf Dog. An important thing to know about me is that I love dogs. Although, maybe that isn’t a shocking revelation, because Dogs are undeniably awesome. Coincidentally, I am also quite a fan of the beach, and while I’ve never gone surfing before, the prospect is interesting to me. This event is a culmination of all those goodies. Not to mention that it’s a Surf Dog competition! Time for some fun in the sun with your family and four-legged friends. And if I’m not successful in my attempts to convince you to go, at least let this picture of a bulldog surfing be all the argument that I need.


Surf City Surf Dog is currently taking place in Huntington Beach. However, the actual surf competition aspect of the event doesn’t begin until tomorrow. And if you just so happen to look, or go outside, you may notice that it’s pretty hot this weekend. I think it’s a plenty good idea to go to the beach. The competition starts tomorrow at 8 AM right at Main Street Huntington Beach. So the temperature should be pretty nice and not too blazing. And here is a link to Surf City Surf Dog’s website. Enjoy your weekend everyone, and surfs up!
