Dogs and their owners came from as far away as Florida, Australia and Brazil for the eighth edition of the annual event in aid of animal charities.
Canine and human competitors had 12 minutes to catch their top five waves, with judges evaluating them on their confidence level, length of ride and overall ability to ride the wave.
The winner of the dog-only shredder division was Bono, a Labrador owned by Ivan Moreira of Brazil. An Australian Kelpie named Abbie won the separate World Dog Surfing Championship.
