More than 50 daredevil dogs came together to hang ten at Imperial Beach, California, last weekend. This video shows just how adorable they looked, and how impressively they performed.

There’s one part of me that kind of hates seeing animals do what I can’t manage with my opposable thumbs and larger brain. But I can’t resent this event for too long. Those water-loving wax head pups are just too cute!

And besides, money raised from the competition benefited local school programs. No matter which way you look at it, getting a pack of pooches together for fun on the high seas can’t be anything but awesome.

There are certain animals none of us ever really wants to come face-to-face with. Lions and tigers scare the crap out of me, as do sharks and killer whales.

Which means this video has put me off ever going surfing.

Bringing the ‘cool’ back to surfing. Or hurricanes. Or idiocy.

These guys are insane. I would be scared to death if I were caught in a wave this big, and wouldn’t have a clue what to do! I went to the big beach in Maui once and had a hard time getting into the water, and the waves were a tenth the size of these.

These are the Billabong Ride of the Year nominees, and the top five under consideration were Manoa Drollet, Ian Walsh, Shane Dorian, Carlos Burle, Michael Brennan. Each wave was equally gnarly, but who would you guess took the winnings?

Surfing Rocks!

Surfing is a competitive, difficult and amazing sport. Over the past week, I’ve been checking out the most awesome surfing videos out there. We’ve got painful wipeouts, cool music videos, wacky commericals, and even surfing mice. Yes–surfing mice!

I walked away from all of these videos with one thought in my mind: if mice can surf, why can’t I?

Watch as this surfer is brutally attacked by a Great White Shark. This is “Jaws” come to life!

This video includes an interview with the surfer, who explains his terrifying point of view during the attack. Then, we get to watch the video again in slow motion, where we see that the surfer was actually attacked by two sharks!

Thankfully, the surfer walked away with minor injuries to his right arm. He was extremely lucky! As he says, he was staring at the shark; they were “face to face”!

I’m going to think twice before getting into the ocean again. There’s no shame in swimming in a pool, right?
