Surfing sailors and soggy Mexicans plunged into the North Sea as part of the third annual Foamy Fest fundraiser.
One of Tyne and Wear's more bizarre charity events, the festival involves surfing in fancy dress after completing a sand-built obstacle course.
Taking place on Longsands Beach in Tynemouth, the 2012 event attracted dozens of people despite the miserable weather.
Costumes included a giant squid, Batman, a sailor, Mo Farrah and Scooby Doo.
The event began as a tribute to Angela Louise Frazer, who lost a six-year battle against breast cancer in 2008.
Her younger brother Chris Allott, a keen surfer who usually organises the fundraiser, came up with the idea following her death.
Unable to attend the 2012 Foamy Fest due to teaching commitments in Thailand, best friend and fellow surfer Sandy Kerr stepped into the role.
Sandy said: "It's just a great community event. It's amazing how many people have turned up here."
Proceeds this year totalled almost £1000 and will be donated to Marie Curie and the Daytime Oncology Cancer Unit at Rake Lane Hospital.
