A score of surfing Santas painted the Cornish coastline red on Sunday at a festive fundraiser for The Wave Project.

Over 20 people, including former English national surf champion Hannah Harding and former UK champion Russell Winter, along with members of the Wave Project Surf Club, donned Santa hats and hit the 7ft waves at Towan Beach in Newquay

The event, which was dreamed up by local business Adams Surfboards, and supported by the Cornish Pasty Company with free pasties, raised £200 for the Wave Project.

Wave Project chief executive Joe Taylor said: "It was a really heart-warming event at this festive time of year. We’re really stoked that so many people got into the spirit of things and took part.

"Everyone at the Wave Project would like to offer our thanks to Adams Surf Industries for coming up with the idea and organising the event, which we feel has been a big success."

Adams surf shop manager Alex Christian, who organised the event, said: "It has been an awesome afternoon and we’re stoked that it has helped to raise some funds for The Wave Project."
