Tsunami Diaries an insightful documentary of a relief effort after the tidal waves that devastated portions of Indonesia thru the eyes of our pro rider Timmy Turner. For those of you unfamiliar with Timmy, he directed and produced the successful surf movie "Second Thoughts" which won Video of The Year at the Surfer Poll 2 years ago just before embarking on this docu-journey/ humanitarian relief effort. Tsunami Diaries also just happened to be shot just prior to Timmy's life threatening battle with staph infection that spread through his sinuses and then into his brain. Doctors will tell you that his surviving is a miracle and after seeing this movie, it's obvious in more ways than one.
The movie starts out with Timmy's wife Jessica laying into him and visibly upset about leaving his family to go into the disease ridden and dangerous areas of Indo with longtime friend and photographer Dustin Humphrey. Well, if that wasn't enough, Timmy's mother Michelle threw herself into the mix as well to help with the effort.
