Humans aren’t the only “surf dogs” – surfers’ four-legged friends love water too, and many even like catching waves. These amphibious canines are special creatures: Top surfers believe that dogs who learn to surf develop a unique attitude, knowing they have something that sets them apart from other dogs.
For anyone who loves the antics of “man’s best friend,” The Dog’s Guide to Surfing is indispensable, collecting stories, lessons, and advice in one richly illustrated book. For surf-lovers, there’s also plenty of information on surf gear and riding a wave, both with and without a pooch. From mounting a massive seven-footer to simply playing in the water, The Dog’s Guide to Surfing shows how to really be a surf dog.

THE BOOK THAT LAUNCHED AN ACTUAL NEW SPORT!
The 1st Annual World Dog Surfing Championships will take place in Northern California, bringing together the best in local and international dog surfing talent. A portion of the proceeds will go to dog and environmental non-profits. Additional events are planned for Hawaii, Florida, and other locations.
The Surf Dog Competitions sponsored by TasteTV, were originally created by TCB Cafe Publishing as the “Small Wave Surf Dog Competition” in 2006, which took place at the Loews Coronado hotel in San Diego.
The very first Surf Dog competition in history wasconceived and proposed by the author of the book, “The Dog’s Guide to Surfing.” After approaching a local Southern California hotel to host the competition, the debut event took place at the Loews Coronado hotel in San Diego. Its success was so great that it has spawned several similar dog surfing events across the world.
TCB Cafe Publishing is now expanding its original Surf Dog Competition to an International surf dog contest series including local surf groups, dog and pet organizations, and fun-loving friends for the title of “World Surf Dog Champion“.
