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!
