Huntington Beach: where surfing has gone to the dogs


Surf’s up, dawg!

Forget the Olympics or the World Cup. Why watch athletes strive for glory, pushing themselves to ever greater feats of mind and body, when you can, instead, watch dogs surf?

 

Huntington Beach, a.k.a. Surf City USA, is all about shooting the curl, hanging ten and any other surfing catchphrases I’ve picked up from an intimate knowledge of Point Break. But watching surfers do crazy stuff is oh so 1991.

 

Enter: Hanzo and Kalani (pictured above).

 

Huntington Beach is also home to the annual Surf City Surf Dog competition. And Aussies can hit the shores of the unofficial sister to our own Manly Beach and be, like, totally stoked dude by the spectacle.
