    A first run to see how it looks. Still have to get a santa (That one is a dancing one and too good to go on the surfboard), clean up the jetski, mount some lights and a flood on it... But this will give you an idea

    It's to go with this song I did many years ago: Santa's Coming On A Surfboard
    I look at those lights (Which were bright, the camera sucked) and shudder.... To think, that was just 4 years ago :eek:

    Do you bring the smoke home from the power station in the drums the jets ski is sitting on or do you create it locally?

    The drums are from work, yes (Used to be filled with Polisher resin), but the station I work at does not produce any smoke thanks to fabric filters lol. Small smoke machine (700 watt) is in the hull of the jetski, making controlled smoke real easy :)

    Oh and the smoke machine is DMX controlled, so even better.

    Might have to look at antlers, although I was planing on putting the larger of the deer standing on the jetski as a laugh
