To help replace the surfboards of the members of the Batu Karas Surf team, lost when they were struck by the Tsunami in Banten, Indonesia.

by Georgia McCullough in Yapton, England, United Kingdom

On the 22nd of December 2018, the coasts of Banten and Lampung were struck by a tsunami due to the eruption of Mount Krakatoa. 12 members of the Batu Karas surf team had just competed at a surf contest when they were struck by the tsunami. Thankfully they all escaped unharmed, however their car was swept away along with all of their boards (8 in total) and equipment.

The aim is to raise as much as possible to help towards the replacement of the boards, leashes and fins (as surfers we all know the coast of all these things). Due to large import taxes at the Indonesian border, the plan is to purchase boards in Bali and then drive them to Batu Karas. Currently I am aiming to raise £1000, this would allow me to replace 3 boards. The more money raised, the more equipment can be replaced.

Fingers crossed we can get the Batu Karas groms back in the water and competing again soon.
