Christian Surfers: faith and passion in surfing

"Groundswell" chronicles the history of Christian Surfers with stories and photographs of the international surfing movement.

Christian Surfers were launched in Australia, in 1977. Since then, the institution has spread its network of missions in over 30 nations, comprising over 1000 volunteer leaders spreading the love of God through all levels of surfing.

"We felt marginalised by the surfing community because we were Christians and marginalised from the church community because we were surfers", explains Brett Davis, Christian Surfers founder and director.

"Groundswell" displays a complete collection of snaps and detailed stories of more than 30 years. Andy Irons is not forgotten, too.

"I was just 18 years old and brand new to this 'Jesus' bloke and all we knew was that we appreciated a new direction in life, we had concern for our surfing mates and wanted to make a difference," Brett said.

Faith, heaven, belief and peace are part of surfing life. "Groundswell" is a story of ordinary people in their ordinary settings trusting God to do extraordinary things and is available as a 250-page paperback ot 260-page coffee-table photo book.
