Christian Surfers Thailand
Christian Surfers Thailand (CST) began in 2012. There are two missions in the country, one in Phuket and the other in Khao Lak. They work together to bring Jesus to the mixed religious and cultural groups that make up the Thai surf and beach communities. The Thai surf community is small but growing with both men and women getting into the sport. There are several surf competitions run by locals that CST helps support in varied ways, from judging, organising, even competing. CST has also run educational holiday school camps for kids and taken on nurturing the next generation of Thai surfers by running CST Grom Comps. In Phuket they support the youth by running a surf school which provides employment and mentorship while providing vocational skill training. The Khao Lak mission runs a surf club for local youth and a surfer-friendly church. CST is still young but each year grows with more people who have a heart to use surfing to reach Thailand.
