Meet Ryan Rustan and his canine companion Sugar the surfing dog. Ryan grew up in Huntington Beach and comes from a long line of surfers. From an early age he hung out at the pier and got into a rough crowd of hardcore surf rats, leading to a troubled life as a young man. His path to healing came in an unlikely form: meeting and rescuing a street dog (and future surfing partner), Sugar. The two have since become local legends, inspiring visitors and locals with their abilities in the waves and their special relationship.
