Ohana Surf Dog Competition

Hey there, Moondoggy! Wax your boards, and gather your pack! It’s time for the annual Ohana Surf Dog Competition, sponsored by and benefits the Galveston Island Humane Society (GIHS).

The competition takes place from 8 am – 12 pm on the beach across from Menard Park, at 27th & Seawall Boulevard. “Now, in its 10th year, proceeds from this event – generated through registration fees and generous sponsorships – benefit exclusively the Galveston Island Humane Society.” – Executive Director, Josh Henderson.

Each round lasts 10 minutes, with the dogs given a maximum of six rides through the surf to try to impress the panel of judges. The dogs are judged based on the length of their rides, technique (such as standing on all fours, sitting, or lying down), confidence, and size and strength of the wave, plus bonus points awarded for any tricks performed.
