•Is this a training conference just for leaders?
No, this is a gathering of the tribe.  We’re stoked on everyone from leaders to first-timers or folks who aren’t even a part of CS!  There will be training options as well as some really great surprise guests.
•Is this on a cruise ship or just a fun theme for an event on land and at the beach?
Just a fun theme for an event on land and at the beach.
•Is there Childcare?
No childcare is provided.
•What ages can attend?
All ages. There will not be child care, but we don’t mind the tiniest of surfers there (even surfing babies) or “Legends” who who were around during the beginning of our mission back in the day! Come one, come all.
Will I need a wetsuit?
Summer water temps in So-Cal can vary. For late July, be prepared for anywhere from a full or partial 3/2, to a 1-2mm top, to (fingers crossed) maybe even no rubber for the hardy. We recommend checking Surfline local temps for Carlsbad as the event approaches.
•Can I sponsor the event?
Yes! Email for sponsorship opportunities.
Can I sleep in my car/van in the church parking lot?
Sorry brah, that’s a negatory.
