Ride shotgun with George Trosset as he drives through Cocoa Beach, and watch people smile. 

His 1953 Pontiac Tin Woody wagon with surfboards strapped on top is the perfect ride for a beach town. That it’s bright red and has Santa strapped in the back makes it perfect for Brevard’s original Surfing Santa.

For George, it’s Christmas all year. He’s been coming up with bigger, better surprises for the 13th annual Cocoa Beach Surfing Santas, which will be Christmas Eve in the waves off Minutemen Causeway. 

He’ll take Christmas Day off, then he’ll start planning for 2022.
