Some 19 surfing Santas hoped to bring some cheer to beach-goers as they hit the waves on Florida's Space Coast.
Water temperatures were in the 60s when the group gathered
Christmas Eve, but they were undeterred. They wore red suits and
beards. One surfer had a board covered in wrapping paper. Another
donned a life preserver -- for safety, sure, but also for a nice
Santa belly. There was even a Mrs. Claus among the lot.
It's the second year George Trosset has held the event. The
Rockledge resident is hoping to convince folk at Guinness World
Records to create a category for "Santa surfing."
