Hannah Whiteley: kiteboarding's Mother Christmas

Meet Santa Whiteley. We believe you know her. At least dressed in other costumes. Helpful tip: She has more Hs 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 world.

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.
