Updated: Oct 28, 2022

Meet our Featured Dog: Faith The Surfing Pitbull! She was found along with her brother, Ace in a parking garage in Downtown San Diego on Thanksgiving weekend of 2012. Both the them had belts around there necks and looked underfeed and very dirty. In the summer of 2013 as a volunteer with the Helen Woodward surf dog clinics I thought why not give the pups a try on the surfboards. Faith took to it like a fish to water.

We entered Faith in her first competition a few weeks later and she has been riding the waves ever since. Some of Faith's accomplishments include:

  • Surf Dog Surf-A-Thon Division winner in 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, & 2019; Best in Surf winner in 2019 & Runner up in Best in Surf in 2016 & 2018

  • Surfcity Surfdog champion 2017 & Tandem champion in 2021

  • Florida International Dog Surfing Championships runner up

  • Numerous televised appearances

What they love about Fetch The Sun is that their "matching apparel embraces the bond between you and your pup while out enjoying the world around you. Fetch The Sun also gives back to the local community animal shelters and other organizations." Fetch The Sun loves how Faith and her owners encourage being active while promoting a dog breed that is often misunderstood. She is one cool surfing pup!!
