http://marty.boiserealestateshop.com/On Sept. 11, 2011, the 14-year-old Jack Russell terrier named Buddy was inducted into the Surf Dog Hall of Fame as part of the animal charity, Helen Woodward Animal Center’s Surf Dog Surf-A-Thon, the world's largest dog surfing event. Hang 20? Buddy the Surf Dog Catches Waves and HeartsMost sports have a hall of fame to honor their greatest players, so why shouldn’t surfing? Dog surfing, that is. To date, only one talented pooch has been inducted into the Surf Dog Hall of Fame. His name is Buddy. 

Buddy has been surfing with his owner, Bruce Hooker, off the coast of Ventura County, Calif., for the past 10 years. Within that time, Buddy won numerous tournaments, including the first four Surf Dog Surf-A-Thons, and became the canine face of dog surfing thanks to appearances on Animal Planet, Pet Star, ESPN, CNN, NBC and the CBS Morning Show. 

Although Buddy sticks with smaller waves, he's surfed waves as big as five feet.

"Buddy does it for the right reasons," former surf journalist Nedra Abramson, who now organizes the Surf Dog Surf-A-Thon, explains. "He loves to surf -- and he does turns! He's brought the sport great notoriety." 

But does he hang 10 or 20? There are some great videos of Buddy surfing on the Internet. You can see him in action by searching for Buddy the Surf Dog on YouTube.
