Animals of all shapes and sizes competed to be top dog in the sixth annual Loews Coronado Bay Resort Surf Dog Competition, held at Imperial Beach in California.
Competition was split into categories for small surf dogs under 40lb, and their larger counterparts.
A separate category was held for dogs and their owners surfing together on the same board.
Top dogs were awarded a VIP - Very Important Pet - holiday at the San Diego resort, and a feature in Modern Dog Magazine.
