Surf Dog Ricochet

Surf Dog Ricochet has been working with Best Day since 2009. She adores children and has a deep rooted intuition that allows her to communicate on a heart to heart level with no words needed. She is a world famous, award-winning dog who surfs for fun, wins dog surfing contests & most importantly… SURFS WITH PURPOSE! She surfs solo, with children, adults, pros, celebrities, other dogs & even a goat!


  • She’s the only SURFice dog® in the world who interacts and surfs with kids with special needs, people with disabilities, wounded warriors and veterans with PTSD as an assertive aid.
  • Ricochet is also a hero dog and therapy dog who lives a lifestyle of helping others by ‘pawing it forward’ while raising awareness & offering support to human/animal causes.
  • She has raised over $350,000 and recently published a book called “Ricochet: Riding a Wave of Hope With the Dog Who Inspires Millions”.

This inspirational video has over 4.4 million views telling the story of Ricochet
