320 Surfing Santas

A new world record for the largest surf lesson!

Hundreds of Santas learn to surf

RedBalloon, Let's Go Surfing, and OneWave came together to hold the mass surf lesson and they rustled up the hundreds of Santas using social media. All the prospective Santas were given a Santa suit and access to a board. Best of all, for every participant RedBalloon was kind enough to donate $10 to OneWave, a non-proft surf community tackling mental health issues with a simple recipe...saltwater, surfing, good mates. 

OneWave is famous for running Fluro Friday's, where an early Friday morning surf has a very fluoro tone with mental health at its core. The idea has now spread to nearly 60 beaches across the world.
