With grateful thanks to our Title Sponsor, Ann’s Cottage Surf Shops

Our Santa Paddle was postponed at Christmas due to bad weather and we are now pleased to confirm that we have rescheduled for Saturday 16th April!

We are still accepting new sign ups, so if we didn’t convince you to jump in the sea in December, then how about April? Come and join us as we hop back into our Santa suits this Easter!

Thanks to our friends at Cornwall Watersports, we will paddle around the bay in our Santa suits, starting and ending at their HQ on Pentewan Sands. We will finish the day with medals and a free hot drink from Hubbox.

Registration will open on the day from 15:00 with an aim to set off on the water at 16:00. We will be accepting new sign-ups on the day, but if you want to hire a kayak or paddleboard get there early to avoid disappointment!

Can you do it?

We recommend that this paddle is only undertaken by competent kayakers and paddle boarders with previous experience. There will be safety boats joining us on the day.

Frequently Asked Questions

When do we get our Santa suits?

Santa suits will be available on the day of the event.  Please contact us if you wish to get yours earlier.

Do I need to raise a minimum sponsorship?

Whilst we do not ask for a minimum sponsorship for the Santa Series we would ask you to raise what you can to support the work of Cornwall Hospice Care. The registration fee at our events covers the cost of putting on the event so the generosity of our supporters in raising sponsorship allows us to continue to provide our care free of charge to terminally ill patients in Cornwall.

What sizes are the Santa Suits?

The Santa Suits are sized as follows :

Adult – 14yrs +

Youth – 7-14yrs

Child – 3-7yrs

What happens if the conditions are too rough?

The date is weather dependent and will be closely monitored. If we have to change the date we will give as much notice as we are able to and any decision to change dates will be with the help and experience of Cornwall Watersports.

Is equipment hire included in my registration?

Yes, kayak or SUP hire is included in the registration fee but these are limited and will be first come first served so don’t delay!
