Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 21 January, 2007 : – – Surfers, surfing perfect 4ft Croyde on Boxing day, were given a chance to remember the Tsunami victims, as they warmed up by drinking free coffee and eating mince pies. Christian Surfers UK wanted to remember the victims, two years on, by putting on a display of the work carried out by Surf Relief UK, Paddle 4 Relief, and Christian Surfers in the Arugam Bay area of Sri Lanka.

It was a very busy day, with a packed car park, and many surfers took time out to reflect on the devastating events of two years ago. Meanwhile preparations are well underway for the next charity event of the year with a concert in South Wales.

Tickets are selling rapidly for American rock surf band A?a??A?SwitchfootA?a??A? who are coming to the UK for a concert at the Brangwyn Hall in Swansea, South Wales on Feb 7th.

They have already released 6 albums, including some music for the A?a??E?Superman 2A?a??a?? film, and are widely respected as one of the best surf rock groups on the surf scene. Their last album sold 2.6 million copies.

  • Hard to believe.
    I worked with children in Arugam Bay and I know a lot of people – but I have not noticed any of the projects claimed to be done by the Christian Surfers.
    Also there are no orphans at all! The few there were are all cared for by family members. So what is this orphanage and teachers stuff all about?
    A clarification and reply from you would dispel any doubts, Mr. Phil!
