Fun Memories From Last Year’s Surfing Santa Event

We just moved down here last year so 2022 was our first year. It was cold (for Florida) but bring from up north, we were loving it. The sunshine and the activities were so much fun. Our intention is to make it our annual Christmas Eve celebration. It was the best!

What I remember most is the weather was so warm! We were all in bathing suits! So many dressed up in Christmas costumes, so many santas surfing & the music, Hawaii dancers and the santa sky divers! It was an incredible Christmas Eve!
