The Paddle for Life started after lifeguards from Fistral Beach held a Joe Way memorial paddle to raise money for charity in 2008.  Joe is the inspirational little boy who touched people's lives around the country and beyond.

Our aim is to raise awareness of Joe’s story and inspire people to raise money for their chosen charity.

Newquay Hosts UK's Only Santa Surf & Fun Run

Written by Scott Dickinson on .



Fistral Beach will be closing the parking meters on Saturday 12th December as part of its Santa Surfing & Fun Run competition. The meters will be off all day so you can join in the fun, catch up on some Christmas shopping, use the restaurants or enjoy the beach.

There won’t just be one Santa coming to Fistral beach this year but a whole sea of them; and this year they will be running and surfing to raise funds for a local charity.

The Santa Surf and Fun run is, organized by the Fistral Surf Center, Cornwall Hospice Care and the Joe Way Appeal.

Matt Way, from the Joe Way Appeal said, "We are stoked to be invited to this event for the second year running and look forward to the Newquay community putting on a good show and raising money for a great cause."

You can run, jog or walk along the fun run across Fistral beach, which starts at 11am, and then enjoy some mince pies whilst watching the surfers.

The surfing Santa's will be competing to win some great prizes and the "Santa Foamie Surfing Contest", which starts at 12.30pm, is all about having fun.  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.

Jenny Briant, surf event organizer said, "Last year's event was so much fun with a real mix of abilities and ages, we cannot wait to see hundreds of Santa's taking over the beach."
