RedBalloon has organised a beach spectacle showcasing a truly Aussie Christmas experience: 320 surfing Santas at Bondi.

The new record for the “world’s largest surf lesson” was officially announced by Guinness World Records at Bondi Beach this morning, after 320 locals paddled out and participated in a 30 minute surf lesson from RedBalloon supplier ‘Let’s Go Surfing’.

In the spirit of the festive season, RedBalloon invited Bondi locals, surfing communities and more to participate in the free event and to become part of the world record books.

RedBalloon CEO Nick Baker said, “Surfing in December truly highlights the Australian summer Christmas. We were really excited to work with ‘Let’s Go Surfing’ and with Bondi locals to break this record and to share an unforgettable RedBalloon experience with all 320 who participated.

“Today was a great example of what RedBalloon stands for at Christmas – that the best gifts cannot be wrapped.”

Further spreading the spirt of Christmas, RedBalloon is donating $10 for every participant in the 250 needed to break the record to ‘One Wave’, a non-profit Bondi surf community raising awareness for mental health.

Baker added, “One Wave are an inspiring organisation that does fantastic work with the community. We are thrilled to be able to support this like-minded group that understands the importance of positive experience to wellbeing.”
