IN BEELD. Deze surfende honden trotseren de golven

Tijdens het jaarlijkse ‘Surf Dog Surf City’-evenement op Huntington Beach nabij Los Angeles konden honden deelnemen aan verschillende surfwedstrijden.

Het is de achtste keer dat de competitie georganiseerd wordt. Sommige honden trotseerden de golven alleen, anderen in tandem met hun baasje.
