Surf stars stoke out VIP groms at Quiksilver Pro Gold Coast

Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 2 March, 2015 - Coolangatta, Australia - Eight Vegemite SurfGroms were living the dream across the weekend as VIP guests at Snapper Rocks on the Gold Coast.

Vegemite SurfGroms is the world-first national junior surfing program which offers 5-12 year olds an opportunity to develop strong ocean awareness and beach safety skills, while also developing a proficiency in surfing.

More than 35,000 children across Australia have enjoyed the program since it started in October, 2011.
