Gidget's Story: I'm an agility dog who trained under one of the top agility instructors on the East Coast who win's the Westminster AKC shows. My talents were to exceed in being an AKC agility dog, but I aimed for the water! For a solid year I practiced agility jumps & balance & became an ace paddleboard dog! My mom is from Malibu and loves the water, we decided surf & paddle & see where my talents go. With only 1 year of competing in pro dog surfing I won 1st in my heat & 3rd place at Del Mar San Diego Helen Woodward 2015. I am sponsored by SONY, Airhead SUP, California Board Company, Surf Ride & SWELL & Me & My Dog Brand gave product sponsorship to my mom! I have an editorial coming out in Malibu Times Magazine Winter edition. With all this being said, I'm hoping 2016 is a Rocking Swell year! My main goal is to raise funds for those in need, and enjoy surf competition's with all my surf friends!
