Pacifica's Annual World Dog Surfing Championships is taking place on August 3rd at Linda Mar Beach.
It is free and open to the public to watch dogs of all sizes catch some waves and have some fun. This years competition doesn't come without it's fair share of drama as last years winner of the small dog competition, Gidget, has not been invited back due to his owner.
As TMZ reports,
"We're told Gidget's owner was pissed that despite her pooch's victories, she was not featured in press materials or social media campaigns. Instead, WDSC hyped another doggo named Derby ... who's bigger and rocked shades while hanging 20...Our Dog Surfing sources say the owner was constantly blowing up event staff and organizers demanding Gidget get more promotional face time. Not only that, but we're told the owner was riling up folks in the pug community to crap on the event."
Regardless of the drama, this years World Dog Surfing Championships is sure to be a good one.
