On December 24, 2016 at 8 am EST, at 2 Minuteman Causeway in Cocoa Beach, Florida, this fantastically fun event will happen again. Hundreds of Surfing Santas will gather to ride the waves and share fun in the sun for the 7th annual Surfing Santas event. This is all for a good cause. All proceeds benefit two local non-profits, the “Grind for Life” organization and the Florida Surf Museum.
In December 2009, George Trosset, his son George Jr., with his wife Britteny, paddled out for a Christmas Eve surf. Over the past 6 years, the gathering has grown to nearly 300 Surfing Santas in the ocean at the same time.
Surfing 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.
