Everdure Barbecues sponsor Wahu Surfer Grom Comps

Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 27 July, 2014 - Coolangatta, Queensland: Surfing Australia will be cooking up a storm this summer with Everdure Barbecues becoming a support sponsor of the Wahu Surfer Groms Comps. Regarded as one of the major stepping stones in the development of young Australian surfers, the 10-event Wahu Surfer Groms Comps will cater for surfers from Under 8 to Under 14 and will be held in New South Wales, Queensland, Victoria, Western Australia, South Australia and Tasmania. 

A qualified chef will be firing up the Everdure barbie making sure the hordes of grommets, their parents and friends don’t go hungry with the Everdure Sausage Sizzle feeding the crew at all 10 events.

“Everdure is extremely proud to be partnering with Surfing Australia for the Wahu Surfer Groms Comps,” said Anita Gounder, Everdure Divisional Manager. “Everdure Barbecues go hand in hand with Australia’s outdoor, beach lifestyle and we’re looking forward to keeping all the hungry groms fuelled with a huge sausage sizzle at every event.”

Success at the Wahu Surfer Groms Comps has launched the careers of many of Australia’s most promising surfers. 

Previous champions include former World Junior Champion Matt Banting, World Under 16 Champion Jacob Willcox and many members of the Australian junior team that has contested the ISA World Junior Championship including Luke Hynd, Eli Steele, Kai Hing, Chris Zaffis, Quinn Bruce, Isabella Nichols, Holly Wawn and Laura Poncini.

"Surfing Australia is thrilled to have Everdure Barbecues join forces with our national Wahu Surfer Groms Comps junior surfing program," said Surfing Australia CEO Andrew Stark. "The fit is perfect with the Wahu Surfer Groms Comps offering a fun atmosphere on beaches around Australia for kids and their parents.

"The surf event in the ocean is complemented with great beach games and activities utilising all the great Wahu beach toys and now this fun environment will be significantly bolstered with a great Aussie barbecue thanks to the fantastic support of Everdure Barbecues. We are very excited to add Everdure to our sponsorship portfolio and look forward to a great partnership with them into the future."
