Surfing Santa is Coming to a California Beach Town Near Santa Cruz


It’s the most wonderful time of the year when Surfing Santa arrives on the sandy beach with his team of reindeer who steer him directly to Capitola, California’s Main Beach. The Big Kahuna wears a tropical shirt and sunglasses, and after he dries off, he settles into a beach chair on the sand to listen to the wishes of all the good little beach kids. Do they want new surfboards, O’Neill wetsuits, or some related gift? Santa takes it all into account before he heads back to the sea (his preferred method of travel) to visit the next California beach town. Aloha, Santa!
