Santa Claus Visits Santa Cruz

November 07, 2016

The holiday season is among us. It's time for tricks and treats, turkeys that are stuffed, and Santa’s that surf? A beloved Santa Cruz tradition every Saturday after Thanksgiving, is watching Santa surf his way up to the beach to meet the enthusiastic crowd with a couple of HoHoHo’s and a few high fives! This years surfing Santa can be spotted at Capitola Beach in his infamous Hawaiian red shirt, accompanied by his wet-suited reindeer.

Depending on whether you have been naughty or nice, you can tell Santa exactly what you would like for Christmas. This event is great for the entire family to get a little fresh air and to plunge right into the holiday spirit. Make sure you get the first sneak peak of Santa Claus before he gets busy parading around town!
