Panama Surf & Serve 2024

Category: Surf & Serve
Join this all male Surf and Serve to Santa Catalina, Panama and help bring the Gospel to a beautiful and rapidly growing small fishing village on the Pacific coast, a few hours away from one of the largest financial hubs in the Americas, Panama City. On this trip, you will be serving the local community in a variety of ways, beach engagement and outreach, construction projects, or possible dental/medical outreach – all while growing deeper in your faith and in community with other men living life on mission.
After an overnight just outside the Airport in Panama City the team will set off on a 4-6 hour drive (depending on traffic) to Santa Catalina. Staying in hostel style bunkrooms with A/C, kitchens, working toilets and WIFI, the accomodations are very suitable for those with limited travel experience. The waves on offer at the main point, La Punta (just a short walk from the hostel), are large open ocean right handers geared towards those with a more advanced surf ability, often breaking in the 6 ft + range and over – although there are beach breaks and other waves in the area that cater more to intermediate and beginner surf abilities. Make sure to bring your paddle arms for this point break as one previous team member counted upwards of 700 paddle strokes to get to the main take off spot at the point!
