Let’s go surfing! Catholic Surfing Ministries (CSM) offers free one-day surf retreats to youth groups, parishes, and other young adult communities. That's right: totally free. We want to strengthen local faith communities by providing a unique, powerful, and prayerful retreat experience. Our mobile surf retreat comes to a beach near you!
Surfing is a sport that is fun for girls and guys of all ages. Our professional surf instructors are life-guard certified, Virtus trained, and capable of providing a fun surf experience for beginners of all ages. We also bring stand-up-paddle boards, kayaks, body boards, and other fun beach games!
The Sacramental Surf Retreats are approximately 4 hours long. Our mobile surf retreat and instructors will travel to a beach nearest you. With the support of the pastor, each retreat begins with Mass at your local parish (or on the beach), followed by a day of professional surf instruction and fun in the ocean. From shade tents to surfboards and beach games, we have everything needed to create an unforgettable retreat!
NOTE: At this time we are only serving the East Coast. With your help we can grow to the Pacific Ocean and beyond!
