Over the weekend the 4th annual Lowes Dogs Surfing Competition was held to raise money for the Modest Needs Foundation.

The goal of Modest Needs is to prevent self-sufficient people and families from entering the cycle of poverty from one bad setback, to help working people with unaffordable work-related expenses and to strengthen small non-profits by providing them an opportunity to get grants to further their work in their communities.

Over 60 surfin’ dogs and their humans entered the competition, fun was had by all. The event was broken down for small and large dogs. There was also a competition for tandem surfing. The top prize was a getaway at Loews Coronado Bay Resort, not too shabby.

A favorite in the Large Dog category shows off his style in this video. Though he didn’t win, he did hang ten (or, more accurately, 18) very tenaciously, as any Bulldog should.

Watch some of the pups in action.
