After weeks of strong winds and big swells the weather conditions are looking good for this Saturdays Santa mayhem at Fistral beach with a dropping swell and sunshine forecast this year's event looks to be the biggest yet.

The Santa Surf and Fun run is, organized by the Fistral Surf Center, Cornwall hospice Care and the Joe Way Appeal. The fun events will run together at Fistral beach where Men and women, boys and girls, young and old are welcome to join Team Santa and help raise funds for Cornwall Hospice Care.

You can run, jog or walk 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 including a 2 night break at a beachside apartment on Towan beach, surf clothing and much more.

The "Santa Foamie Surfing Contest" which starts at 12.30pm is all about having fun. There will be an open mixed division for men & women alongside an U16's division which see all the competitors wearing Santa outfits over their wetsuits.

Although it is a surfing contest it is also about giving surfers who have always wanted to try competing the opportunity to do so in a fun way for a great cause along side seasoned competition surfers.

Jenny Briant Surf event organizer said "If you don't want to paddle out the back you can grab some waves on the white water as it's all about taking part and you can tick competing in a surf competition off your bucket list at the same time".

If you feeling really sporty you can enter both events and what better way to get into the festive mood while supporting a local charity.
