Surf's Up For VEGEMITE SurfGroms

Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 8 October, 2011 : - - Coolangatta/Qld - Australian beaches were taken over today by more than a thousand children to launch VEGEMITE SurfGroms. Surfing Australia’s national junior development program had its on-beach launch at surf schools from Perth and Yallingup to Port Noarlunga, Coolangatta to Mollymook, Scamander to Phillip Island, and many places in between.

The first program of its type available anywhere in the world, VEGEMITE SurfGroms offers youngsters aged 5-12 years old an opportunity to develop strong ocean awareness and beach safety skills, while also developing a proficiency in surfing.

Surfing Australia CEO Andrew Stark said it was great to see so many children enjoying the surf. “VEGEMITE SurfGroms will be giving children all over Australia important guidance in beach safety and ocean awareness,” he said. “It’s great to see the kids outdoors enjoying a healthy and fun activity with their friends and discovering the enjoyment of surfing, which is a skill they can enjoy for the rest of their lives.”

VEGEMITE SurfGroms is supported by an extensive and robust website – – which will allow all children and parents to register for a safe and secure social network called the GromRoom. It will allow participants to share their favourite SurfGroms moments with family and friends.

Parents can still register their children through the website with programs available throughout summer through the Surfing Australia Surf Schools Network with more than 60 delivery centres around the country.

VEGEMITE SurfGroms is proudly supported by VEGEMITE, Quiksilver, Wahu, Telstra, Surfing Australia, the Australian Sports Commission, Surfing World, and Coastalwatch.
