Show me a beach with a wave, and I'll show you a surf school. But not all surf schools are alike.
Most of them will teach you about paddling out, getting into a lineup, wave judgment, surf etiquette, etc., but Laguna Beach has a surf school that's different than most.
Soul Surfing School will teach you how to ride a wave while learning about Jesus Christ. Well, not at exactly the same time, but you get the point.
On its website (www.soulsurfingschool.com), Soul Surfing School describes its mission and purpose as thus:
"Kids who attend the camps will experience the thrill of surfing in a beautiful location with a focus on their relationship with Jesus. Our goal includes strengthening the walk of Christian kids who attend the camp in addition to sharing the gospel message of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ with non-Christians and providing an outreach ministry to surfers in and out of the water. We are committed to providing professional instruction, ensure students' safety and encourage an appreciation of the ocean. We desire to be a positive witness of our Christian faith both in the surfing industry and in the community."
