Christian Surfers poster

For many surfers, being at one with the ocean is a spiritual experience. This is particularly true of Christian Surfers, a movement founded in Australia which spread to New Zealand in 1985. It is part of an international mission, with the motto, ‘From the Beach to the Church’. This poster advertises the Jesus H2 Series, a competition organised by Christian Surfers New Zealand in 2003.
