Surfing Community rallies to aid stricken Surf Spots

The British surfing community has come together as never before to provide relief to victims of the Asian tsunami disaster.

Tsunami Surf Relief UK brings together the BSA, BPSA, Christian Surfers, Carve magazine and members of the surf business community to raise awareness of how surfers can help those affected in the areas they or their friends have visited.

Surfing connections throughout the Indian Ocean region are well established, especially in Indonesia and Sri Lanka, where last year's BPSA Champion of Champions contest was held.

Dave Reed of the British Surfing Association explains: "Many British surfers, professional and amateur alike, have spent time in Asia and know the areas and often the local families affected by this terrible disaster. They desperately want to show their support and give something back to those communities and Tsunami Surf Relief will provide a focus for that. Our aim is to support long term projects, using our local contacts and aid organisations on the ground to identify and deliver relief to specific communities."

It is anticipated that many more surf businesses, clubs and professionals will join with the newly formed fundraising group and the call to action goes out to surfers all over the UK for Surf Relief Day on 9th April 2005 when coordinated surf events, contests and sponsored activities will take place around the country.
