My name is Haole and I am an 11yr old Yellow Lab whose true passion is surfing. I reside in Ventura, Ca with my parents John and Kim Murphy. Also my younger dog brother Primo. I have been enjoying beach life since I was 4 months old.
A couple of months before my 5th birthday, I “told” my parents I wanted to surf. Upon swimming out to my Dad coming in on a wave, I attempted to get on my Dad’s board & have literally been surfing ever since.
For more than 4 years I was competing in the dog surfing circuit, and have since retired from competition. My parents say I’m well respected throughout the surf dog community. Now my main focus is my involvement with A Walk on Water. My calm, mild nature allows me to connect with all people especially children. I have an incredible way of earning their trust. My parents and I find pure happiness in sharing the stoke of surfing with the A Walk on Water athletes and their families. According to my Dad, I have way of making people smile as I cruise in on my waves. I’ve been told that I have the soul of an old surfer, laid back and always happy, and have brought much happiness to those whom I have met along the way. I am proud to represent Ventura as their Ambassadog, recognized as a Canine Good Citizen, and now as a Brodie Fund Ambassador, and will continue to surf & spread stoke as long as my 4 legs will allow.

See you on the next wave!
