Talented canines have been taking to the waves at the Dog Surfing Championships in Florida.

The event took place in challenging conditions on Easter Sunday (04.04.21) but a Labrador named Lily overcame choppy waters to claim a dominant victory.

Six-year-old Lily has been surfing since she was just weeks old and put in an impressive performance in front of a crowd of thousands.

Her owner and trainer Michael Vogt told Florida Today: "She had a blast.

"It was fun but it all benefits the Brevard Humane Society and that’s what’s important."

The event took place following coronavirus guidelines after last year's championship was cancelled due to the pandemic.

The dogs also brought cheer to the crowd with a red carpet contest in which pooches called Darcy and Winston took top honours.
