My first real experience with SurfAid was nearly 10 years ago after the Boxing Day tsunami in December 2004 and it was one of the most extraordinary experiences. I had never seen that ability for humans to come together and be so efficient and offer up their expertise. SurfAid was able to get into areas where other aid organisations couldn't because of their knowledge of the ocean and coastal areas.
SurfAid's capabilities were extraordinary and that was a big eye-opener for me. And that's why I was drawn into being a SurfAid ambassador from the start.
