Meet the Winners of the 2023 World Dog Surfing Championship

The World Dog Surfing Championship has just wrapped up in California, with several proud pups flashing their winning medals. (But of course any canine who competed is a very good boy or girl)

Here’s @cheriethesurfdog, who won the Medium Dog Category. This was Cherie’s 5th and final championship, and she went out with a bang!

@faithsurfs the Surfing Pitbull won the Large Dog Category.

@derbycalifornia took home the Extra Large Dog Category.

@carsonsurfdog took home the Top Dog Final Overall Champ title.

@skylerthesurfingdog won the Dog/Human Tandem Category. Skyler is a legend in the dog surfing world at 15 years old. This is her final competition, so lets wish her a happy retirement!

And the winners of the Dog/Dog Tandem Category: Rosie, Charlie, and Carlson!

For another wave-catching canine, check out Ricochet, the golden Retriever who changed lives through surfing.
