(Video) Surfing Santas, A Brief History

Merry Christmas. Here is a strange and festive annual holiday happening you may want to check out if you find yourself near Cocoa Beach, Florida: Surfing Santas. The event has grown since it was started in 2009 and now thousands attend to watch and hundreds participate by surfing in costume each Christmas Eve. This year (yesterday) some 600 Santa surfers attended and raised money for charities.

Monday’s Surfing Santas event raised $40,000 for two local nonprofit organizations: Grind for Life, which helps people with cancer, and the Florida Surf Museum.

These Santas weren’t riding sleighs and were more likely to glide along with jellyfish than reindeer, but from the photos, it looks like a cool way to spend Christmas Eve.

In December 2009, George Trosset, & George Jr. With his wife Britteny, paddled out for a Christmas Eve surf. For the last 6 years, the gathering has grown to over 300 Surfing Santas in the water at the same time.

Surfin’ Santas has evolved into annual gathering of the local surfing “tribes”, sharing the ride of Christmas Magic. It is the one day a year that ALL the local tribes share ALL the waves at a local surf spot.

Annually, on December 24, at 8 am EST, at the end of Minuteman Causeway in Cocoa Beach, Florida, this fantastically fun event will happen. Thousands of people and hundreds of Surfing Santas will gather to ride the waves and share fun in the sun.

Ooops – meant to add that – C. When it hits 40’s it is seriously hot. We live in the capital city (Adelaide) of driest state – South Australia. Bush fire risks are extreme in this weather.
