As up and coming small town, Pacifica, just 6 years old, had an idea to reinvent the way Santa would visit the children that holiday season. Santa would fly down to see the kids one windy day in December, to bring Christmas joy and help promote the growing town of Pacifica. However, that very wind would be the one of the twists of fate that kept the Pacifica on its toes as Santa blew away into the ocean and in the path of an unsuspecting surfer named Guy Giedzinski.
Watch Deidra Kennedy, a member of the Pacifica Historical Society, interview Guy Giedzinski about his thrilling rescue in 1963. He'll reveal all the details about the rescue and how it still impacts him to this day.
