CS International Gathering 2018

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 in France 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!

Cap Océan Conference Center
We are returning to Cap Océan after first meeting there for the 2004 International Gathering. Located one hour north of Biarritz, and conveniently located walking distance to world-class beachbreaks and a 5 minute drive to the town center, we are excited to reconvene in a historic venue for our ministry. Visit their website
