Surfing Santas Downtown Cocoa Beach Benefiting Grind for Life 2016

For the past seven years, before Santa delivers toys and gifts, he’s been breaking away to catch some waves in Cocoa Beach on Christmas Eve morning. Pretty cool, right? 

The Surfing Santas event is an annual Cocoa Beach tradition that brings hundreds of surfers dressed up as Santa. Watch them ride in on the waves and kick off your holiday weekend beachside at this FREE event. 

New this year, the crowd can participate in a costume contest. Dress up in your favorite winter themed outfit – snowman, Santa and Mrs. Claus, gingerbread man, reindeer, elves – for your chance to win prizes.

The money raised supports Grind for Life, a local cancer support group, and the Florida Surf Museum.

Thank You Everybody for Your Great Work and Support

Grind for Life Presents The Old Man Bowl Jam at The Tampa Am 2016

Friday night following Tampa Am 2016 was our Annual Old Man Bowl Jam, hosted by Grind For Life where all the retired Pros, washed up T.M.s and anyone over 35 that rips basically gets their own spot in the limelight. This is raw skateboarding at its finest, and I'm pretty sure the grand prize was a six pack of cheap beer. After the dust settled and shoulders were popped back into place,

Your top 5: Jimmy the Greek, Franco Lopez, Orlando Ramos, Luca Basilico, and Tito Porrata. Congrats dudes! Big thanks to Grind For Life and Mike Rogers for hosting. Don't forget to check out and make a donation to Skate and Destroy Cancer.
