Dogs on surfboards - level 2
It’s known that surfing is popular in Australia, but it is not just people who surf. Some dogs like surfing, too! There actually is a surfing competition for people and their dogs in Queensland.
The dogs are at the front of the boards and their owners are at the back. One man said how much his dog loves surfing. The man just pats on the board and the dog jumps on it. The dog wouldn’t surf if it didn’t enjoy it.
A lot of people gather at the event. Around 500 surfers, including amateurs as well as professionals, from 13 nations come.
Difficult words: pat (touch), gather (come together), amateur (person who does something for a hobby and is not an expert).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
