CS Girls

Q+A with Misty Foster


Who are you and where are you from?
Misty from Gold Coast Christian Surfers

How did you first get involved with Christian Surfers and what is your role now?

I first heard about Christian Surfers through family friends when I was 14 years old. I was invited along to a camp I think? To be honest I don’t know what my first event was. I pretty much went to every event after that. My current role is a spoke leader of our CS Goldy hub. I run our CS Girls spoke and help out with our monthly hub events. I also have the privilege of being part of the team who post on the CS Girls social media.

How has Christian Surfers made a difference in your life?
Christian Surfers has made a huge impact on my life. I often get asked to explain Christian Surfers to people and I can only say it is like one huge crazy, frothing, culture changing, God loving family. When I was a grom it was a place to hang out, be crazy and grow in my faith surrounded by amazing mentors and leaders. I was completely shaped by those legends into the person I am now. At high school it was considered normal to drink, do drugs and hook up with people and I had a lot of friends who were very into that. I had already reaffirmed that I was going to follow God in my first year of high school so I wasn’t into the same things my friends were and that was hard. They didn’t get it. So having Christian Surfers to go to every Thursday night was my escape from that. I got to hang out with the raddest people who loved God and surfing and were crazy fun. As an adult it is how I serve God and am so blessed to be part of it. All my favourite humans I have met through Christian Surfers.

What do you value about CS Girls?
The genuineness! CS Girls are real and fun and love God and adventure. Lots of laughter too. I love that we can be a part of a movement that speaks genuine encouragement and love into each other’s lives. And the girls that are part of our CS family seek to build each other up and share God’s love and truth with more girls. The girls surfing culture is hectic. Either its competing and comparing with each other or trying to prove yourself that you can be as good as one of the guys. CS Girls is the opposite of that. We are there to love on each other and just hang out and laugh. But also help each other grow closer to God.

What would you say to encourage girls who are keen to be involved in Christian Surfers?
Do it!!! Come join us up on the Gold Coast! We would be stoked to have more girls join!!!


Q + A with Claudia Johnston

Who are you, and where are you from?

Claudia Johnston. From Avoca, Central Coast though moved to Currumbin, Gold Coast four years ago.


How did you first get involved in Christian Surfers, and what is your role now?

I first became involved in Christian Surfers through beginning a CS family in Kingscliff North NSW, along with two other friends. We all had the same passion to use our love for surfing to spread the word of God and CS provided us with great support and network to make that happen.

Now, I have migrated 30 minutes North to the CS Gold Coast family, which have also become a big part of my life.


I am also a Christian Surfer Girls Instagram contributor, which provides the best platform to draw in and speak to girls all around the world. I am very grateful for that opportunity.


How has Christian Surfers made a difference in your life?

The Christian Surfers Community I am now apart of have taken me in so openly and lovingly. Through the kindness of all members, I have truly felt Gods spirit speak to me and hold me accountable to seeking truth. As a surfer, His Divine presence surrounds me in the ocean and being a part of a community which celebrates that alongside me, I have seen how easy it is to use surfing as an opportunity to show others love and light.


What do you value about CS Girls?

CS Girls has really helped me to mentor and be mentored. As a 19 y/o, I have truly valued and loved speaking to, adventuring with, and hearing the words of the other female leaders and surfers in CS. The characteristics of Christ shine through the hearts of the all the girls who I have met. And wisdom, She is shared and seen through the interactions, devotions and words shared by the beautiful CS female leaders, which I appreciate.


What would you say, to encourage girls who are keen to be involved in Christian Surfers?

If there are any girls out there who are considering joining the CS Family, know that the community will love and cherish you, build you to be a better Christian, and make your surfs much more fun! And we can unite together to spread the love of God to all the other surfy souls who have not yet found Him.
