Some sporting pooches were hangin' ten 20 18 this weekend in San Diego for the 7th Annual Loews Coronado Bay Resort Surf Dog Competition.

Not only did the dogs take to their surfboards like water, they managed to set three Guinness World Records in addition to competing in a series of heats.

The event, which is a fundraiser for the ASPCA, will go in the record book for the following, according to Imperial Beach Patch:

Most amount of dogs surfing on one board at one time (more than 10 dogs).
Most amount of dogs surfing on one board at one time (more than 10 dogs) with a human (Scott Chandler).
Most amount of dogs surfing on one board at one time (more than 10 dogs) with two humans (Scott and Tyler Chandler).
