    I went down to the beach, but was a bit too late for the competition … oh well, next year! The waves were GREAT that day so no doubt the dogs were hanging 20 the whole morning :)

    Great way to put it (hanging 20!). You definitely need to check it out next year. It was tons of fun and awesome to watch these furry things shred the waves!
