We all know Santa for his present-delivering skills, his love for cookies, his sled driven by the famous 8 reindeer, and his crew of talented elves.
But did you know that Santa also likes to surf? See for yourself at the Surfing Santa Competition at the beaches of the Ritz-Carlton Laguna Niguel.
Be prepared for an ocean full of Santas at Salt Creek, just below the Ritz Carlton resort on Saturday, November 19. This competition is a charity contest, with money raised supporting Surfers Healing, an organization that teaches autistic children the therapeutic ways of surfing.
The surfing contest begins bright and early at 7:30 a.m. and goes until 4:00 p.m.
Continue the holiday festivities with the Ritz-Carlton with their annual tree-lighting ceremony. Watch in awe as the resort’s 40-foot tree lights up with holiday life. Also at the event will be live music by The Jeeps, and a guest appearance by Santa himself.
These, along with other holiday events at the Ritz-Carlton Laguna Niguel, will get you right into the Christmas spirit.
