Christian Surfers International is a trans-denominational mission movement that shares the love of Jesus amongst the global surfing tribe. It was founded in the early 1970's on the Northern Beaches of Sydney, Australia.
Since the late 1970's Christian Surfers has been reaching out to surfers. Christian Surfers International was born in 1999 when Christian Surfer groups from a number of countries joined together as an international movement.
The movement, which is incorporated as a not-for-profit in Australia, also has chapters in New Zealand, The United States, The United Kingdom, South Africa, France, Japan, and Brazil.
It now has a mission presence in over 20 countries around the globe, and has received recognition for its commitment to the international surfing community, organic faith initiatives, and compassion activities such as Tsunami-relief and other aid projects.
CS (as it is often referred to) publishes a yearly color pictorial 'Groundswell Magazine', runs mission trips, camps and surf comps (such as the Jesus Pro Am), premieres films through the Walking on Water Foundation, provides a positive mentoring environment for young surfers, offers hospitality for traveling surfers, and undertakes numerous social action initiatives (in the countries listed above, and also abroad).
At its core the movement is about spiritually aware surfers using surfing to make the world a better place - by sharing Jesus' love.
Whilst there are many members of the global surfing tribe who follow Jesus, some you might know are:
