Here’s the trailer for the short:
Professional surfer, shaper, and animal lover Scott Chandler sets out on a quest to break the world record for dog surfing. Chandler's Ark shows Scott's journey from constructing his massive fifteen-foot board, to practice days at dog beach, all the way to his attempt for the world record in San Diego, CA. We get a unique inside perspective of the determination it takes when setting out to break a world record and how one boat sized surfboard brought together a team of friends to make it all possible.
Leave it to Professional Surfer Scott Chandler to go BIG!
On Saturday June 16th, 2012 at the Loews Coronado Bay Resort's Surf Dog Competition,
Scott set 4 new world records.
1. The most dogs surfing on one surfboard. (17)
2. The most dogs surfing on one surfboard tandem with a human. (Scott Chandler)
3. The most dogs surfing on one surfboard tandem with a human paddling. (Scott Chandler)
4. The most dogs surfing on one surfboard tandem surfing with more than one human. (Scott and Tyler Chandler)
The SoCal Surf Dogs were proud and honored to be a part of these records.
Scott custom made a 15 foot long surfboard (the DogCraftCarrier) just for these records.

It’s with indescribable heartache I share with you that my Nani passed away on December 2nd, 2016,
in my arms, under the care and incredible compassion
of the doctors and staff at the Veterinary Specialty Hospital
in Sorrento Valley, San Diego, California.
She was 12 years and 9 months old.
She was the reason I founded the SoCal Surf Dogs group and created the SoCal Surf Dogs website.
Nani changed my life in ways too numerous to mention here.
I met most of you because of her.
My house, like my heart, is so empty now.
I already miss her so much.
