My friend Kevin Cody had this idea in 1978 to bring the old surfing Santa Claus illustration to life by putting a Santa on a surfboard and photographing him for his Easy Reader newspaper.

Today, there are Surfing Santas in the waters of Los Angeles, Pismo Beach, Santa Cruz, Florida, you name it. And Cody is still at it, doing a yearly Surfing Santa photo for the Easy Reader.

I tagged along recently on a video shoot for the 2020 Santa cover, and had fun cutting a new video.

Please take a look and let me know what you think!
