No, this isn’t photoshopped and yes, that’s a real dog. He made the wave and rest assured, he’s fine. This is Skyler, the surfing pooch, and he’s officially pawed his way into the record books with this triumphant display of cowabunga. We’ve searched and searched intensively through our extensive dog-surfing archives, and we’re proud to announce that Skyler is the new owner of a highly coveted K-9 XXL Award – the most prestigious of trophies in the world of big-wave dog surfing. Congrats Skyler, go easy on the Milk Bones and find yourself some bitches to celebrate with.
