Meet Mango! This surfing Labrador loves the sea!
Like most Labrador Retrievers, Mango has a thing for water and finds the appeal of splash and waves irresistible. Mango’s owner, Matt Slater from Cornwall, says it’s how they bond with each other, adding that surfing with Mango is only possible because of their strong relationship.

The 7-year-old Labrador rose to internet fame after videos of her hanging ten trended online.
“It first started when we were our surfing one day, we left the dog on the beach and she just decided she wanted to join in,” Matt shared. “She swam right out through the waves, and I soon realised I was going to need to get a board big enough for the two of us!”
Matt and Mango in St. Newlyn East, which means they’re a drive away from Holywell Bay in Newquay, Cornwall.
“We only surf together for a maximum of half an hour and if she is not enjoying it we go back in,” Matt said.
Awww. Enjoy riding the waves, Mango!
