The 6th annual dog surfing competition, officially known as the Loews Coronado Bay Resort Surf Dog Competition, drew in hundreds of local citizens as well as dog surfers from across the US. Over 50 dogs of all sizes gathered along the shore of Imperial Beach, California for an intense day of competitive surfing on June 5, 2011. Dogs compete in 10 minute heats as they attempt to catch at least two waves. The heats are subdivided into three categories, small dogs, large dogs and tandem dogs. Judges look for confidence in the four legged surfers as well as a long wave ride and a good sense of fashion.

Winners of the competition receive a special vacation package at the Loews Coronado Bay Resort. All profits from the competition are donated to DonorsChoose.org, an online forum which provides a space for public teachers in San Diego to request and receive funding for school supplies from private sponsors.
