Where do we surf?.....We like to get around and pretty much wait until the saturday morning to decide which beach we go to so we can get the best surf on the day - even then, we can end up going to different beaches through-out the day to catch the best surf. If we are travelling for more than an hour or so, we then like to plan in advance because we may need accommodation, extra food, etc. Surfing trips that head off on the Friday night and camp over for a day's surfing on Saturday are common. We have a portable BBQ and marquees to provide some pretty-rad, decent shelter. With an open fire, food, good company and plenty of surf......what more could ya want!
Where do we meet?.....Here is a map showing the pickup location. Sometimes we provide pickups at Adelaide CBD, Glenelg and Nourlunga. Day trips are $68 for a two-hour surf lessonand the use of a surfboard/wetsuit. Group bookings are welcome.
Who is Luke Drummond?.....Luke started this surf ministry because he loves God as much as he loves living life to the extreme. Here is an article about Luke and our surfing ministry in the "RISE" magazine (on pages 12-13). He organised and ran this ministry for 4 years [more info]. This surf ministry is now run by Pastor Neil Aitchison who is an accredited Surfing SA surf coach [see details] and he can be contacted on 0410725792 or email for more info.
Sharing God's Message?....We love having fun, but there is more to life than what we see around us - this is why we are Christians. We can have fun AND have eternal life. God is amazing and when we yield our life to Him, we experience life to the fullest. Click here to find out how to get to heaven. The surfing ministy therefore includes sharing our faith in God in a variety of ways - such as Bible DVD's shown on the in-bus TV whilst travelling, Gospel music being played, Bible studies on the beach and one-on-one discussions about God, the Bible and how to live God's way (....in between catching waves!).
How do we travel?....We have both a 19-seater Coaster bus (for state-wide trips) and a Mitsubishi Fuso Coach (for nation-wide trips) each fitted out with TV and DVD player, awesome sound system and we tow a trailer with waterproof, locable canopy and surfboard racks. For legal reasons, it must be stated that all transportation in our buses is provided free of charge and is funded by non-obligatory donations to Sanctuary Baptist Church. We are currently purchasing more wetsuits and 35 surfboards so that we have everything we need to have a good day's surfing (....of course, God provides the waves to surf on). For smaller groups, we use our 4x4 Pathfinder to save on fuel (it also provides transportation for all the surf shop requirements). We are currently purchasing a beach buggy to get out onto the beaches and to use for promotional purposes - it will also tow a jet ski. You can bring your own surfboard on our trips if you are already a surfer.
How to contact us?....Phone Pastor Neil Aitchison on 0410725792, or you can email us if you want more information about this ministry.
