Surfing and Spirituality
Join us on Wednesday mornings at 7am at the corner of Del Playa and Camino Majorca. All levels of experience are welcome!
PLEASE NOTE: Surfing & Spirituality will not be available for the rest of this academic year. Check back in the fall!
Surfing and Spirituality invites students to engage their love of nature and neighbor with their love of God. Every week, we explore different spiritual practices in order to delve more deeply into how surfing itself can be a spiritual practice. Whether you are an avid surfer or have never been on a board--whether you have no spiritual training or are a seasoned monastic--come try it out! SEE YOU THERE!

He has studied a wide variety of spiritual practices and traditions, and he is the vicar and chaplain at St. Michael’s University Church in Isla Vista.
