History of Surfing Santas Cocoa Beach
What started as a fun family outing in 2009 has grown to become an annual event that raises tens of thousands of dollars for local charities and draws surfing and Christmas enthusiasts from all over the planet.
Over the past decade, Surfing Santas has grown into one of the most unique and fun-filled charity events the world has ever seen. This congregation of costumed kahunas has grown to record-breaking numbers with over 800 Surfing Santas and nearly 10,000 spectators. Sponsorship from the city of Cocoa Beach and the participation of local businesses have come to make this a true community event. Moreover, the event benefits the Florida Surf Museum which is “Preserving Floridas Surfing History” and Grind for Life, a local charity benefiting people suffering from cancer.
The Surfing Santas are sure to set more records in the holiday sun this year. There will undoubtedly be sights unseen before on beaches anywhere else in the world.
The first professional surfer, Phil Edwards, once said, “The best surfer out there is the one having the most fun.” On December 24th at 8:00am, the world’s “best surfers” of all skill levels and all ages will be in Cocoa Beach fully clad in their finest holiday gear and having the most fun the Christmas surf and sun can provide. Get your costumes ready and plan to join the fun this Christmas Eve.
The community’s support has been overwhelming, and Surfing Santas Cocoa Beach thanks everyone who wants to ride the Surfing Santa wave.
