surf & snow dts

Across boarders. Pushing the limits.



We run the regular 6 month DTS program with the added flair of having Surfing & Snowboarding/Skiing a big part of the school. Our heart is to go deep in relationship with God alongside using our abilities in hard to reach places on outreach. This school has a twin outreach focus of evangelism and community development in 5 target communities in North West Africa and the Middle East.

lecture phase

It starts off here in Biarritz with a 12 week lecture phase where we will have visiting speakers from all over the world teaching on a specific topic each week. Alongside lectures the students will be part of worship sessions, prayer times and practical work on the base and in the community. We will also be spending a lot of time together surfing, riding and exploring this corner of the world!

It’s a real life-transforming experience. It’s all about knowing the heart of God and making Him known in the nations. We’re not just looking to learn more head knowledge but to let that knowledge overflow into our lives and let the power of God transform us and those around us.

“During my DTS God pushed me past my own limits and I was able to see incredible growth spiritually! My relationship with Him became more intimate, and now I hear His voice everyday!”

– Jordy, Canada

outreach phase

The 11 week outreach phase goes to the epic places of the earth! Pushing boarders and pushing the limits – the Surf and Snow DTS aims to go to North and West Africa and the Middle East using Surfing and Snow sports as the platform to reach out. Full of adventure and life, you’d go to some of the most beautiful places on earth to share the love of God to some of the most beautiful people!
