Final Wahu Surfer Groms event prepares for Sydney

Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 20 February, 2014 - Sydney, Australia - The final Wahu Surfer Groms Comp for the 2013/2014 series will kick off on Sydney’s Northern Beaches this upcoming weekend.

Over 120 kids are expected to compete in the two-day competition, which will see grommets as young as six-years old tackling the Northern Beaches waves.

Already the Wahu Surfer Groms Comp series has held nine events across New South Wales, Queensland, Victoria, South Australia, Western Australia and Tasmania.

“It’s a great honour for Surfing NSW to be hosting the final Wahu Surfer Groms Comp for the 2013/2014 series,” said Surfing NSW Event Manager Luke Madden.

“So far this season, we’ve crowned a range of champions and every event has been hotly contested. We expect the same this weekend, especially in the Under-14 Boys and Girls where the winners get the opportunity to win a trip to an all-expenses paid, three-day Wahu Surf Camp at the Hurley Surfing Australia High Performance Centre."

"A lot of past Wahu Surfer Groms Comp champions have actually signed up to compete in this event, so it’s safe to say that the performance level will be pretty high.”

The event is expected to kick off at either Dee Why or Curl Curl, depending on the conditions.

All competitors are advised to ring the event hotline (0458 247 212) by 6.45am on the days of competition to confirm location and running order.

On land competitors and spectators will have the opportunity to win Wahu prizes in beach games like: Crumbed Cutlet challenges, Looney Legs and Cricket Catches.

The Under-8 will be a 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 also receive a Wahu Surfer Groms Comps t-shirt for entering, plus a Wahu beach product.
