Groms ditch school uniforms for annual Wahu comp jerseys

Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 10 December, 2013 -- It’s that time of year again, where grommets cast off their school uniforms and prepare for some serious time in the sun and surf, and what better way to kick off the school holidays than the Wahu Surfer Groms Comp on the Sunshine Coast?

Over 100 eager grommets from all over the country will invade the Sunshine Coast this weekend for the first of two Wahu Surfer Groms Comps being held in Queensland over the Christmas Holidays – the second will commence on the Gold Coast January 8th, 2014.

The two events are part of a national series that caters specifically for youngsters with divisions for Under 8’s, right through to Under 14’s, and is all about providing a fun, but competitive environment. There will also be loads of prize giveaways and tons of beach games.

As an added bonus to the series, the winners of the Under 14 divisions at each event will be invited to respective boys’ and girls’ (20 participants total) three day “ Wahu Surf Camps” (all-expenses paid) at the Hurley Surfing Australia High Performance Centre.

Event organisers will spend this week surveying conditions on the Sunshine Coast for the best possible conditions leading into the weekend.

Spectators are encouraged to come down and find a spot on the sand to witness the depth of the Sunshine Coast’s talent pool and meet some of Queensland’s next crop of surfing superstars.

Competitors and spectators are encouraged to call the Surfing Queensland Event Hotline on Ph# (07) 3030 6388 after 6:30am each morning of competition for event location and start time.
