Just when you thought you had the line-up to yourself along comes a zoo-ful of animals who are determined to take over the surf.  Have a giggle at some of the cute, weird, and wonderful creatures who love the surf as much as we do…
 
  • 1- Dogs
 
To begin our foray into the world of crazy surfing animals, we have to start with man’s best friend.  Dogs really do follow us anywhere, and even have a go at surfing on rare occasions. Some of the most bizarre surfing dogs can be seen at the annual Surf City Surf Dog Competition that’s held at Huntington Beach, California… look out for it this September at: surfcitysurfdog.com
 
  • 2- Dolphins

 
For your classical surfing creature, it has to be the dolphin. The beautiful mammals love to play in the waves, gaining momentum and speed as they ride the peaks and troughs. If you are really lucky you might even have them around you when surfing…
 
  • 3- Seals
 
Just when you thought seals would be like Dolphins, just cruising the surf along comes one who is extra inquisitive. This lucky surfer has a friend surface to say hello to his surfboard.
 
  • 4- Rats
 
How and why are another question entirely, but this pet rat has the same love of the ocean as his owner. Note to self: need to find tiny surfboard and try this out with water-loving pets.
 
  • 5- Swans
 
 
What may appear to be an average December day at Kirra on the Gold Coast of Queensland, Australia turned out to something special. Four black swans decided to give surfing a go… You never know what you will see next.

Spring surf sessions are finally here.  Longer sunnier days are creeping in, whilst water and air temperatures are slowly starting to climb up. Which means it's time to get back in the ocean if you've had the winter off.
 
To help inspire you to start doing surf trips again at the weekend, or get planning for your next surf holiday abroad here's a little clip we are loving... Professional surfer Chris Ward and his daughter Malia ripping into the spring waves on the North Shore of Hawaii last year.  
 
Get ready to start daydreaming of tropical climates and surfing in your boardshorts or bikini...
