Santa Claus: SUPing in the flat days | Photo: Naish SUP Center Salzkammergut

Santa Claus is an avid surfer. From the cold waves of the Alaska to the warm rides of sunny summer Australia, Christmas means hitting the waves in red wetsuits.


Santa Claus is known for being everywhere. He hits the waves of Huntington Beach Surf City USA, he rides the biggest peaks of Sydney's Manly Beach and he still has time to check the surf in Newquay.

This year, Santa Claus has been answering several requests from groms and experienced surfers. On the top of wish lists for this Christmas, there are surf movies, surf watches, wetsuits, waterproof surf cameras and new surf boards.

Although it is still impossible to deliver the famous LED surfboards for night surfing and flare surfboards for show off time, Santa Claus knows you may like an innovative surf item: the inflatable SUP board that fits in a bag, a perfect Christmas surf gift for the flat days.

But, is Santa Claus really improving his surfing skills? The answer is yes, of course. Check out Santa's best wave rides, in a Christmas surf video made of pure stoke.

The white-bearded man wearing a red coat and trousers from Lapland, in Finland, also has a Christmas wish. He wants you to call your friends and hit the surf together, as a future surf tradition, on the 24th December morning. Are you ready for the surfing Christmas day?
