Surf Photos For Philippines
7:02am 30th November 2013
Cornwall's surf community pulls together for the Philippines.
Ten of the UK's best wave photographers including Mickey Smith, Alex Williams, Tim Nunn and Roger Sharp are selling their work for typhoon victims.
The money will go to support Duchy charity 'Shelter for Humanity' as it sends teams to help families re-build their lives.
Those on the ground in places like Tacloban have described the devastation as 'something like Armageddon'
Penzance photographer Greg Martin organised the online fundraiser and told Pirate FM: "They're going to be there for a long time basically they're all about rehabilitation, helping people get back some dignity.
"We all saw the pictures of what happened and it's just horrendous but the Philippines is also dear to a lot of travelling surfers' hearts as well. It just felt like there was something as a community that we could do.
"I knew it was a big ask, most of these guys are freelance and are looking to sell their work now in the run up to Christmas. But they all came back, saying 'This is brilliant - I was trying to think what I could do and this is perfect' "
