CSALT Intensive

October 1-3
Cap Océan (same venue as the Gathering)

Following the International Gathering, on October 1-3, we will be hosting a CSALT Intensive at our Gathering venue in Hossegor. This will be a detailed consortium of like-minded CS leaders in a field you are interested in.

The 3-day intensive will comprise four streams:

  • Surf Chaplaincy
  • Groundswell Aid
  • Leadership Training
  • Surf Church

There will be some communal sessions but in order to get full value from each subject, it will be necessary for each delegate to choose one stream and remain in that stream for the duration of our time.

CSALT Intensive Cost: €99

Please note that you will need to pay for accomodation on top of this fee. This can be booked through our Pre & Post Gathering Registration page. When booking you will need to choose the CSALT option as well as the amount of nights needed for accomodation if you are staying on-site.

Leadership Training

The Leadership Training stream will focus on three key elements: The heart of CS leadership (values, beliefs, behaviours); from zero to hero - growing, building and developing a CS mission to a national movement (accountability, governance, leadership team and strategy); practically developing a plan to reach your beach, nation, region or area.
