Every December since 1985, John Fulton the “Surfing Santa” has been raising awareness of homelessness by surfing the icy waters of the Niagara River. Santa Fulton makes the frigid 5km journey on a wind surfer or stand-up paddleboard clad in a specialized cold water “Santa” drysuit. Weather conditions dictate launch location and equipment choice but it’s bon voyage, snow, hail, sleet, rain or shine!
