Dogs Surf Near Their Del Mar Homes
Mark your calendars now for the 6th Annual Del Mar Surf Dog Surf-a-thon! On September 11th at Del Mar Dog Beach, a short walk from your Del Mar home, you can join 4,000 dog-loving onlookers in this annual spectacle. The surf-a-thon raises funds to support Rancho Santa Fe’s Helen Woodward Animal Center and raised nearly $50,000 last year. Last year’s winners may even debut in the world’s first, “Surf Dog Triple Crown,” this September 11th. Humans visiting or who live in Del Mar can also join in the surfing fun as individuals or teams, with or without their pups, at the DOO THE DAH surf contest. Surfers attempt to earn money for the Helen Woodward Animal Center through pledges based on the number of waves caught in a thirty minute time frame. Costumes and themes are encouraged for dogs, their boards, and their owners. Over 40 vendors and multiple activities will be available throughout the day, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., making this a great family activity. Click here for more details.
