With a minimal surf forecast and fears that there might not be any waves to ride, the Good Lord provided some fun 1-3 ft windswell and the 2017 Jesus Fish Fest went OFF this past Saturday! Nearly 80 surfers entered the contest, and along with the competitive spirit there was an awesome sense of community and fun down on the beach. All surfers rode identical fishes (5’8 for the Open and 5’2 for the Groms and Womens) that represented the four Gospels and had scriptures on the deck, so they were literally surfing on the Word of God! Following the competition the eight fishes were given away in a lucky draw raffle to eight randomly chosen surfers that God wanted to bless with some encouragement and a new board. A lot of prayer was put into the winners of the boards and it was amazing to see who God chose to win them and to see the impact of the Gospel that was shared through the verses on the boards with all who were present.
