On Christmas Eve I decided to photograph the 7th annual Cresent Head Santa Surf. I was overwhelmed by the number of participants. It was so spectacular with all the red and white in the water. From children to adults of all ages, even dogs were dressed in their red and white Christmas outfits.
The parade started 5oo meters above the bridge on Killick Creek and the participants paddle to the ocean
Some chose to paddle in canoes, on surf boards, while others used pool noodles or anything, they had available.
Boards of all shapes and sizes to go with the shape and size of the participant.
where some continued on to surf and others returned to the beach to party on. A lot of fun was had by all. Kempsey Cresent Head Surf life saving club should be congratulated for all the effort put in to make this event such a success.
Cresent Head Beach is one of the most popular beaches for surfing and a great holiday destination on the Mid North Coast NSW.
The Life guards were on duty to make sure everyone was safe.
The dogs enjoyed the event as much as the people. I snapped this photo while the surfers were out on their boards and this little guy was happy to pose for me.
This was an enjoyable event for me also. Well worth the visit to Cresent Head, so don’t miss next year’s event 24th December. To view more images of this event please visit www.owenwilson.net.au
