COCOA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Nineteen surfing Santas brought some cheer to beach-goers as they hit the waves on Florida's Space Coast.

Water temperatures were in the 60s when the group gathered with their boards Christmas Eve, but they were undeterred. They wore red suits and beards. One surfer had a board covered in wrapping paper. Another donned a life preserver — for safety, sure, but also for a nice Santa belly. There was even a Mrs. Claus among the lot.

It's the second year surfer George Trosset has held the event. The Rockledge, Fla., resident is hoping to convince folk at Guinness World Records to create a category for "Santa surfing."
