Skateboarding, surfing dogs

Dogs have long been known in the western world as 'man's best friend' after their diverse range of roles in society - from hunting dogs to working dogs to companion dogs.

Of late, owners have been finding new ways to bond with their dogs and it would appear that many have found a new love in teaching their beloved companions semi-extreme sports, and a new era of surfing, skating and snowboarding dogs is developing rapidly.

Meet Tillman

According to the Guinness Book of World Records, Tillman is the world’s fastest skating dog.

The American Bulldog lives in California, USA with his owner Ron Davis who named him after American NRL star Pat Tillman.

He is somewhat of a triple threat to other dogs; he can skate, surf AND snowboard.

Neo and Tuxedo

Neo and Tuxedo are an almost identical pair of Boston terriers from France who share the same love of skateboarding.

Extreme Pete

Another outrageously talented dog goes by the name of ‘Extreme Pete’.

Extreme Pete is fearless and enjoys both skating and waterskiing.

Surf Dogs

Founded in 2009, So Cal Surf Dogs is a club for owners and dogs who love to surf.

Together they enter various dog surfing competitions and keep their surFurs up to date with the latest news and events of Southern California.
