Fistral beach was the scene of festivities on Saturday 13th December with over 30 surfers taking to the water on the sunny Decembers day to compete in a seasonal surfing competition for the Joe Way Appeal.
All competitors donned Santa outfits and took foamie surfboards to the water for the festive event. With the sun shining, spectators saw seasoned competitive surfers, to those in their first contest compete in both an Open cottony for men and women and an U16 category.
Zac Milnes made his way through the heats to win the U16 category and Matt Sutherland took the win in the open.
Event organiser Jenny Briant said "everyone really got into the festive spirit with lots of Santa outfits managing to make it through the whole heat. It was great to see so many people take part in the event and raise money for the Joe Way Appeal, we are already looking forward to the events return in 2015."
The event was supported by ERA Adventures, Fistral Beach Surfing Centre, Tolcarne Beach, Bon Bon Fistral, On The Lip, Perran Signs and PJ print.
