Carlsbad surfer Scott Chandler surfed with a total of 17 dogs onboard at the 8th Surf Dog Competition hosted by Loews Coronado Bay Resort for a Guinness World Record. Going into the Surf Dog Competition, Chandler had won 6 of the previous 7 events riding tandem with his daughter Tyler, and dog Zoey. The World Record effort was a specialty exhibition as part of the Surf Dog Competition.
As a longtime waterman and ocean explorer, Chandler rides and builds shortboards, longboards and standup paddle (SUP) boards. While known for tow-in big wave surfing, hydrofoil surfing and SUP competitions, many people are taking notice of his dog surfing on smaller waves.
