See Spot surf at the Loews Dog Surfing Competition – the nation’s original surfing competition for man’s best friend. Each year, dozens of canines from across the U.S. hang 10 (errr, 20) for a great cause.

This popular competition is an extension of Loews Hotels’ award-winning Loews Loves Pets program and has become a hugely successful fundraiser for non-profit organizations.

Look forward to a wonderful afternoon at the beach! In addition to the competition, enjoy onsite family activities, delicious lunch by the Devilicious Food Truck, sponsor giveaways and more. Please bring beach chairs, towels, sunscreen and umbrellas. And don’t forget your leash because dogs need to be on a leash at all times.
