Hundreds Of Surfing Santas Set A World Record. The Way They Did It Is AWESOME.

It may not have been the standard attire for the water sport, but 320 people dressed up as Santa Claus to learn how to surf in Sydney, Australia. The turnout set the newest Guinness World Record for “the world’s biggest surf lesson.” The previous record was 250 people.

Donning the traditional red jackets, pants, and hats, men and women of all ages spent approximately 30 minutes learning how to ride the large waves of Bondi Beach. The event was held to raise awareness for One Wave, a non-for-profit organization tackling mental health issues like depression and anxiety, through surfing.

Prior to getting in the water, the new surfers went through a drill of learning how to paddle and standing on their boards. If you are wondering if the water was too cold for this time of year. No worries, it is currently summer in Australia.

Next, watch this daredevil ride his bike over a giant wave.
