Charlie loves to surf on the beach more than anything else in the world. The Labrador is obsessed with surfing that he would even grab his human dad’s, Jeffrey Nieboer, surfing board to the ocean.
Jeffrey recalled that Charlie’s love for surfing started when they went on a camping trip to the beach. Jeffrey shared that Charlie was still a puppy when he tried to get him on the board and guided him in the small waves at the ocean.

Jeffrey said that he and his wife did not think much about surfing with Charlie because they just wanted to have some fun. However, Charlie immediately fell in love with surfing as soon as he figured out what to do.
Jeffrey recalled that the beach had dog surfing competitions the following summer. Jeffrey said that the contests were fundraisers for various charities and shelters.
Jeffrey shared that his wife signed him and Charlie up for the competition. Jeffrey recalled that they joined three matches that summer, and even made it to the finals twice.
Jeffrey said that Charlie does not know the difference between competitions and surfing for fun. However, Charlie enjoys both because he gets all the attention he likes and gets to show off to beachgoers.
Jeffrey shared that Charlie gets more excited and pumped up to surf, especially when the crowd is big. Jeffrey recalled that some beachgoers could not believe that a dog like Charlie would enjoy surfing so much.
Jeffrey said that Charlie is too happy whenever he is at the beach. However, Charlie acts like a completely different dog when he is at home because he sleeps a lot.
Jeffrey shared that going to the beach is like flipping Charlie’s switch because he transforms into a hyperactive dog. Jeffrey said that he is thankful for having Charlie because not only does his pet make him happy, but also the beachgoers as well.
