These dogs are legitimately good surfers.
They don't just sit there on the board, waiting for the ocean to take their dignity.
These dogs ride the tide like professional human surfers.
All right, sure, these tiny athletes come nowhere close to the talent and mastery of professional human surfers, but they're trying really hard, so get off their backs.
The paddling puppies in the 7th annual Surf City Surf Dog Competition weren't shaken by the crowds watching their performances. One even surfs with a GoPro strapped to its life jacket.
After the event, the competitors likely enjoyed plenty of attention from less athletic dogs fanpupping over their performances.
