This is the amazing footage of a talented pooch that is the undefeated dog SURFING world champion.
Owner Homer Henard owns Skyler – a ten-year-old red Queensland heeler who jumped aboard his boat in Santa Cruz, California.
She was just a puppy and quickly became her best friend and surfing coach.
Homer immediately noticed ’Skyler Valentine Henard’ had an interest in surfing – she had great balance and was excited about the board.
He took her out on a calm day and they rode some waves together to the beach, her trust and love for her owner grew with every wave.
She now has a decade of surfing experience and is the undefeated dog surf champion of the world right now.
Skyler also works with her owner and various foundations to provide support and therapy for wounded veterans and kids facing adversity.
Homer, 45, said: “I am so lucky to have Skyler in my life she is such a cool chill smart dog that loves surfing waves with me she brightens everyone’s day hanging ten with her tongue out.
”’She is a spoiled lil diva – when we get out of the water she has a totally different pep in her step chin up she knows she was shredding out there.
“Skyler is like my shadow she’s always there and wants to do what ever I am doing.
”She’s a people person dog ! she would rather hang with the boys then the other dogs.
“I’m proud of Skyler she the wold champion surf dog right now she won the surf dog series this year took first place a Huntington beach scoring to 10’s in one heat first perfect score in dog surfing history.
”She achieved riding a board by herself homer and Skyler like to ride together tandem but the dog surfing competitions they ride on there own board
“They have a tandem division which we are undefeated to date which is pretty cool.
”Believe it there are a lot of really good surf dogs that fly in from all around the world at the event this year there was at least 3 dogs from brazil that are helping push the limits.
”These events are packed with people because a lot of these dog surfing fans that follow these dogs on instagram TikTok and other social media come down and can see all these amazing surf dogs in one place.
“It’s crazy there are dogs cruising around with shades on leather jacket and gold chains ! you literally have to see it to believe it!”
“I am an ex pro surfer who now does surf therapy with Skyler for Operation Surf – helping wounded veterans one wave at a time, Waves of Impact helping kids facing exceptional challenges, maui ola foundation helping people suffering from cystic fibrosis, as well as ride a wave.
“We are proud of the work we do with these foundations – its priceless.
”A kid will see Skyler on the surf board and there fears will melt away next thing you we have them riding a wave with Skyler clapping smiling from ear to ear.
“It’s unexplainable the feeling when we catch a great wave and ride all the way to the beach and she looks back and smiles at me with joy.
”Its awesome to have a dog that can share the love and passion that i have for surfing.”
