Do you remember a time before the thruster? Maybe when a cutback was a trick? When Brett Davis had hair? Or you actually enjoyed sleeping in a board bag? You may also remember some crazy times you spent and awesome people met in Christian Surfers.
You might be interested in CS Old Salts.
Old Salts is a new initiative to look out for, reconnect with and hang out with former CS leaders and members. As much as CS is about looking for the younger generation to step up to leadership, we also want to retain and support our past leadership in appropriate ways. God is certainly on the move in Christian Surfers and we would like you to still feel part of this!
As some of you may know, BD has moved sideways from the CS International Director role to a Founder/Adviser role, with Roy Harley from South Africa in place as the new International Director. Brett writes, “I am stoked to be helping initiate the Old Salts, gathering our family of past leaders and members. Some have stumbled, others moved on in life and some are still connected with CS. Whatever your situation, Old Salts is for you and I personally want to help enable this globally.”
In the same way that Christian Surfers works on a broader level, Old Salts will operate on both a local and global level. It will be culturally flavoured, shaped and driven through our national bodies. However, it will also benefit from the international CS network and family.
We anticipate Old Salts to have four opportunities, largely delivered through member Old Salts nations.
- Social Media, e.g. www.facebook.com/CSOldSaltsMovement
- Quarterly national email update of current CS activity
- National reunion events
- National and international surf and exposure trips
All of this is to help you reconnect, wherever you’re at in life and with whatever you are able to share. So, no matter how ‘old’ a salt you are, men or women, long time or short time ago, you can reach out and reconnect - hopefully without throwing your back out!

As a little sweetener, here is a few pics from a recent inaugural ‘Old Salts’ trip with BD and some former leaders and friends from around Australia as they took on Taranaki New Zealand.
