SWIMMERS and surfers at Kingscliff Beach were amazed to see Santa surfing on Friday morning when the old fellow "dropped in" to catch a wave on his blue Mal.
Complete in his famous red attire, he was no shark biscuit, despite his barrel belly as he caught a bombie and looked pretty swell for a man several hundred years old.
"I don't feel a day over 20 when I'm surfing," he told the Daily News.
"A lot of people are surprised to see me surfing here in Australia, since I come from the North Pole.
"But I'm pretty used to the old 'Eskimo roll' and getting out of the sack early to catch a wave.
"I'm more inclined to wear a wettie under my suit at the North Pole, but I prefer the red shorts.
"I'm less likely to have a "malfunction."
