Great fun for the kids. Is this the only location this is done? Somehow I remember it being done at Poipu Beach too. Maybe the 'one and only' Santa changes his destination beach each year.

Aloha from Kaua'i!

It's the only place that has been "announced" - any others would more than likely be kind of spontaneous - lol!

"Bumping" up since Christmas Eve is getting closer and folks might not have seen this earlier.

(hope the "Grinch" doesn't close this topic too - lol!)

No reason this one should be closed. It's totally tourist-related and apropos.

While I love my white Christmases, I think it would be just the coolest thing to see Santa this way! :)

Our Santa arrives by surfboard every year in SoCal, in a wetsuit made just for him:

oh that is cool too! Our Santa sometimes visits our town on the local fire truck or at the ice rink on the Zamboni! :)

Aloha,

A must see if in Hawaii during the season.

Now that is some wetsuit CA.

Here is the Santa video from last year at the Outrigger Waikiki, in front of Duke's.

Same show , same people this year. It has been going on for 14 years or so.

Wish I could be there to see Santa. Have fun! At least it almost feels like Kauai here--should be close to 80 tomorrow:)

Merry Christmas, everyone!
