It's a dog's life for this surfer and his two best mates.

Aussie surfer Chris De Aboitiz never fails to draw a crowd when he heads out on his stand-up paddle board at his local beach of Avalon on Sydney's northern beaches.

And that's because his dogs Millie and Rama are just as adept on the waves as their master.
Footage of the trio has gone viral on social media.

"Damn, those dogs surf better than I do!" was one comment from an impressed onlooker.
