Del Mar, Calif., is one of the most popular surfing spots in Southern California. And Sunday it went to the dogs, with the seventh annual dog surfing competition. Hundreds of canines and their owners paddled out, and then the dogs rode the surfboards back to the shore.

RENEE MONTAGNE, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Renee Montagne. Delmar is one of the most popular surfing spots here in southern California. And yesterday it went to the dogs with the Seventh Annual Dog Surfing competition. Hundreds of canines and their owners paddled out. And then the dogs rode the surfboards back to shore. The North County Times reports the event may have set a record with 14 dogs riding the same wave. And it may have, since there are no dog surfing records. It's MORNING EDITION.
