Relief workers and wave riders appear to crave and thrive in extreme conditions. Surfers are becoming known for their humanitarian and relief force to disasters around the globe, running search and rescue, medical triage and treatment, and distribution of emergency supplies. Since 2004, individuals and organizations such as SurfAid International have been very influential in relief efforts from the devastating earthquakes in Padang, Haiti, and Chile.
