We are beyond stoked at the announcement that was made yesterday at the International Conference in Costa Rica.
Roy, who is currently the African Regional Coordinator and National Director for CS South Africa, will be working alongside our founder and current International Director Brett Davis, before taking on the role during 2015.
220 surfers from 26 nations are gathered for the Groundswell Conference in Costa Rica and they were stoked to welcome Roy, along with his wife Sharon. They also showed their affection and respect for Brett and Gillian Davis, following Brett’s 14 years of service in the role, with an extended standing ovation.
When Roy takes on responsibility for mission leadership, Brett will continue with CS as Founder Adviser, where he will focus on advice, advocacy, training and coaching.
Roy talked with the crew about his personal journey of commitment to reaching surfers for Jesus, and about his hopes for the global mission. Watch the video below to see Roy and Brett discussing Roy’s story and his heart for surfers, and how their roles are evolving
