Bede's Fox Grom Shootout
Point Lookout, North Stradbroke Island, Queensland
2 - 3 May 2015
Event heavy with kid and family vibe on North Straddie
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 1 May, 2015 - North Stradbroke Island, Queensland - Australian surfing powerhouse Bede Durbidge will stage his 3rd annual Bede¹s Fox Grom Shootout at his surfing home of North Stradbroke Island this weekend. The highly anticipated contest for grommets Australia wide, is even more of a hi-light to the close knit local community as they showcase their wave-rich Island home to over a 100 of the nation¹s future stars.
Everyone on the island is super excited, said Durbidge. There is only a few surfing events over there, each year and this one is especially for the kids and has a great family vibe. The whole community is behind it and I have a great support network to make the event happen especially from the Point Lookout Boardriders. There is going to be no shortage of swell. The good thing about Straddie is we can go to one of the protected corners if it's too big at main beach. The weather and waves for Sunday is looking perfect at this stage, Saturday's not that pretty though, added Durbidge.
