Wahu Surfer Groms Comp
Wahu Surfer Groms Series
Ocean Grove, Victoria, Australia
9 - 10 November, 2013
Micro-groms headed to Ocean Grove for battle
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 5 November, 2013 - Ocean Grove, Victoria -- The Wahu Surfer Groms Comp is set to touch down at Ocean Grove this weekend with over 90 up and coming under 14’s getting amongst the action at the popular beach break.
The third event of the national series will take over Ocean Grove Main Beach by the future of Victorian surfing with plenty of action happening in and out of the water.
The Huxtable brothers will be looking to dominate for the second year running after both Xavier (11, Jan Juc) and Ethan (8, Jan Juc) took out their respective divisions of Under 14s and Under 10s last year.
However, younger brother Ethan will have some stiff competition in Patrick Hughes (8, Jan Juc) and Lamperd brothers Jet (8, Barwon Heads) and Zeph (9, Barwon Heads) who will all be looking to knock off the talented younger Huxtable.
The respective winners of the Under-14 Boys' and Girls' divisions from each event will receive an invite to attend an all-expenses paid, three-day Wahu Surf Camp at the Hurley Surfing Australia High Performance Centre.
On land, competitors and spectators have the opportunity to win Wahu prizes in beach games like Crumbed Cutlet challenges, Looney Legs and Cricket Catches.
The Wahu Surfer Groms Comp series is the only national competition series to fully cater for micro groms from Under-8 through to Under-14 and has been confirmed for 10 events across New South Wales, Queensland, Victoria, Western Australia and Tasmania.
The Under-8s are mixed division with parent assists, while competition will be held in both boys and girls in the Under-10, Under-12 and Under-14 divisions. Each entrant will walk away with Wahu Surfer Groms Comps t-shirt for entering, plus a Wahu beach product.
