International Conferences

International Conference 2018

Aaron Hughes

Hossegor, France

We are delighted to be hosting the Christian Surfers International Conference in 2018. The Groundswell Conference held in France in 2004 was a turning point in the lives of many, and played a significant role in bringing several families to France to work amongst surfers on the southwest coast. Please pray for this 2018 edition, that it will touch many people and encourage us to further the work of God’s kingdom in France.

We are a family on mission - we are in this journey together using this amazing tool of surfing to reach every surfer! Come join us for our bi-annual family reunion. Our aim is to gather to train leaders, fellowship together, strengthen and encourage one another. At the conclusion of our time we will send out missionaries to the uttermost ends of the surfing world!

International Conference 2016

Aaron Hughes

Stanwell Tops, Australia

Groundswell Conference 2016 was a phenomenal week filled with as much fellowship, worship, training, surfing, laughing and loving as could possibly be fit into such a short period of time. We wish you all could have been here with us! More than 200 delegates representing 26 nations made their way Down Under. Feel the love in this full recap from an amazing conference.

International Conference 2014

Aaron Hughes

Esterillos, Costa Rica

The big news this year is Brett Davis’ announcement that he is retiring from his position as the International Director and will be passing the torch to Roy Harley. What a joy to see complete consensus for the appointment of Roy as incoming director! Each day started with early surfs with the nations, prayer on the beach and rice and beans combo - the true Pura Vida experience. Opening day just so happened to be the peak of a swell and overhead waves thumped out front of the palm-lined conference centre. A final wrap up by Roy Harley encouraged us to 'give up' (our lives and give them to Jesus) 'change direction' (and be doers of the words we received) and 'go surfing' (we need to be constantly going to our lost surf communities).
