Surf’s Up for this Cornish pooch

Many see a trip to Cornwall cottages, self- catering or otherwise as a fantastic opportunity to enjoy the fantastic coastline on offer and the surf that comes with it. This isn’t only the case for two-legged lovers of the waves- A two-year-old Golden Labrador by the name of Mango has been taught to surf by its owner.

The Cornish dog has unwittingly become the star in a recent video posted on Youtube by Mango’s owner Matt Slater.

Mr Slater is the curator of Newquay’s Blue Reef Aquarium and during his spare time he made the video which shows Matt and his children giving Mango lessons on a body board in a rockpool on Newquay’s Crantock beach. The video then show Mango heading out into proper surf after learning the basics.

They only take her out in head high waves so it’s all good fun for Mango and her beach-loving family!
