And now to the dramatic conclusion of the dog versus dog competition. This is big stuff. It is. It's the 8th annual surf dog competition, and the waves were fierce. Rachel smith joins us from los angeles with more. Hey, rachel. Reporter: Good morning. The competition was fierce too. I'm on puppy patrol this weekend. Wally, the world's ugliest dog. And today we're hanging ten with man's best friend. Not your typical day at the beach, dozens of dogs were unleashed yesterday in southern california to catch waves for a swell time. Surf's up, ups. More like 43 of them ditching leashes for surf boards. Catching waves at the 8th annual surf dog competition in california. A lot of fun. Reporter: But no walk in the park. Waves were up to 4 feet high, and the choppy waves. They were fearless. It was pretty neat. Looked like rough waves, kind of hard. Reporter: Scored on confidence, length of ride, and overall ability to grip it and rip it. We have dog surfing from all over the country, from arizona and nevada, and vancouver and even hawaii. Reporter: More than 3,000 people hit the sand for fun in the sun with their best friend. Raising thousands of dollars for a good cause, the a spca against animal cruelty. And there was a mobile adoption center. We have lots of adoptable animals on site. Reporter: Another treat for spectators, pillman. He's usually the skateboarding bulldog, but he can surf. I'm rooting for him to win. You ready to surf? Get your board. Reporter: He got it e after showing off his skills on the water. Everybody give it up for pillman. Reporter: It was a dog eat dog competition, but one that got everyone's tails wagging. Amazing. And the fun didn't end with the competition, attendes and even the pooches got massages. A dog-gone good time for a worthy cause. Very worthy. A lot of animals need homes and a great job. Thank you, rachel.
