Christchurch earthquake: windsurfers united

Many windsurfers have lost their loved ones, homes and offices after the tragic Christchurch earthquake, in New Zealand. Windsurfing New Zealand has set up a bank account in which windsurfers from around the world can deposit their donations.

Once donations stop, Windsurfing NZ will distribute funds appropriately, after discussing the needs with the Canterbury Windsurfing Association. Everyone will be notified of the total amount achieved and the use it has been put to.

Thank you all in advance for your support and kindness in this very tough time for Christchurch windsurfers. If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact.

The bank details are:

Bank Name - ANZ National Bank Ltd
Account Name - Earth Quake Affected Windsurfers
Account Number - 06-0901-0629957-00
Swift Code for International Deposits – ANZBNZ22

In 2005, Pepsi defied the surfing community by releasing a commercial in which famous soccer stars break the surfers-only beach rule implemented by a group of local wave riders.
