COCOA, Fla. -

Hundreds of surfers in Santa suits, or Santa-type attire, gathered in Cocoa Beach Monday morning to hit the waves and raise money for charity at the annual "Surfin Santas Christmas in the Sand."

There were even skydiving Santas, who landed on the beach soon after the surfing Santas.

The event supports Grind For Life Inc., a Cocoa Beach-based charity that raises money for cancer awareness. Grind for Life was founded in 2003 by life-long skateboarder Mike Rogers, after his second battle with sarcoma cancer.
