Paddle boarding is really taking off along Spain's coasts, and aficianados of the watersport ditched their usual wetsuits for a very different look this weekend when they took part in a Christmas charity paddle.


Dozens of people took to the sea dressed as Santa Claus, complete with red suit, white beard and red Christmas hat.
