Hannah Whiteley: kiteboarding's Mother Christmas

Meet Santa Whiteley. We believe you know her. At least, dressed in other costumes. Useful tip: she has more H's in her full name than any other kiteboarder.

These days, he is the busiest man in the world. In December, Santa Claus, also known as Father Christmas and Kris Kringle, dedicates his time to traveling around the word. However, Claus, the sleigh rider, has an alter ego.

Santa Whiteley is Hannah Whiteley, the British pro kitesurfer, and sports model. The freestyle and speed kiteboarder from Stockport put on a short red-and-white Christmas suit to inspire your Christmas shopping.

"Christmas came windy this year. It's about time I ticked wearing a girly Santa outfit off my list! Thanks Andre Magarao for the video. Have a great Christmas everyone!" wrote Santa Whiteley.

The 23-year-old kiteboarder has been enjoying night riding sessions and exploring Brazil's endless kitesurfing spots.

Call it a lip drop, airdrop or the world's biggest floater. One thing is certain: Kai Lenny opened a new chapter in high-performance big wave riding.
