Our ministry roots began as an action sports or shred outreach - focused on surf, skate, and snowsports. Headquartered in coastal New Hampshire, we are uniquely located with access to the beaches and mountains. With many people doing multiple action sports, it makes sense for our outreach to touch all three sports.
SURFING: Surfing is a year-round sport. Our leaders are out there no matter the weather and do love to share the love of surfing with new people, especially in the smaller waves of summer. We are mostly at "The Wall" in Hampton and Jenness in Rye.
SKATING: Down the Line leaders also enjoy skateboarding (in the parks or around town), longboarding (freestyle and freestyle dancing too!), and carving (around campus or the beach boardwalks). Skateboarding is a unique community and we feel a strong call to reach out to them.
SNOWSPORTS: Once the snow flies, we can't wait to hit the slopes to ride or ski! Many of our leaders have the College Pass. Our prime spot is Gunstock, but we can also go to Waterville Valley, Cranmore, and Cannon. What a great way to build relationships - whether the hour+ journey to the mountain or the chairlift rides between runs.
If you would like to join us out on the beaches, slopes, or skateparks, we'd love to make that happen! Hit us up!
Check out this epic video by our friends at Snowboards & Skiers for Christ which we feel perfectly describes what shred ministry is all about - whether on the slopes, at the skatepark, or in the waves. There is darkness in these communities and we have been called to be a light.
