Santa goes by stand-up paddle on Croatian coast

Dressed in red and with white beards, a group of enthusiastic Croatian paddle boarders gathered on Wednesday (December 23) at Pula on the Adriatic coast to celebrate Christmas at the sea while fundraising for local elderly.

The group of about 15 paddleboarders put on their Santa Claus outfits over wetsuits, attached a beard and paddled into the chilled sea waters.

Apart from having some Christmas fun, the paddle boarders also raised money for elderly citizens of the Istrian town.
