Saturday 13th December, Fistral Beach will play host to a Santa surf competition – the ‘Santa Foamie Surfing Contest’.
As a part of the fun, the car park at Fistral Beach will be free all day on Saturday so that everyone can join in the fun, catch up on some Christmas shopping, use the café, restaurants or just enjoy the beach.
The surfing Santas will be competing to win some of the hundreds of pounds worth of prizes and the profits will go to the Joe Way Appeal on the 13th December in the first “Santa Foamie Surfing Contest” which starts at 9.30am.
There will be an open division for men & women alongside an U16’s division which see all the competitors wearing Santa outfits over their wetsuits.
Although it is a surfing contest it is also about giving surfers who have always wanted to try competing have the opportunity to do so in a fun way for a great cause along side seasoned competition surfers.
The Joe Way Appeal was set up after local boy Joe Way was born with a rare genetic condition, leading to his death in 2008, aged just 4. Since his death, his parents have campaigned to raise £127,213.00 in five years for over 20 charities.
The Entry fee is £15 (which includes the use of a Foamie surfboard and a Santa outfit which you get to keep) with all profits going to the Joe Way Appeal.
Jenny Briant, Event Organiser said, “The entrys are coming in but we still have space and you can enter online via our website. It is better to enter online as we may have limited spaces on the day”.
Prizes for the winners include a two night stay at Tolcarne Beach Village, £100 to spend at The Stable Restaurant, a selection of goodies from Bon Bon Fistral and On The Lip as well as some great prizes from Quicksilver.
