Every year, dogs and their owners get together for the Unleashed by Petco Surf City Surf Dog event.
- Dog owners hailing from as far as Florida, Australia, and Brazil travel to California to participate
- The centerpiece of the event features a multi-heat surfing competition with dogs as the contestants
- Some dogs even surf tandem, not with their owners, but with other dogs (it’s called double dog dare surfing)
- Is it easier to teach a dog to surf or a squirrel to water ski?
“BIONs” – short for Believe It or Not – is the word we use at Ripley’s to refer to anything that is unbelievable and worthy to become part of Ripley’s lore and collection.
