As we draw closer to the summer it is time for groms of all ages to descend on Torquay for the Woolworths Surfer Groms Comp. The comp is designed to deliver a fun and friendly introduction to surf competition for micro groms.
The event will include a broad range of divisions, catering to boys and girls Under 8s, Under 10s, Under 12s and Under 14s. This in turn sets up groms from across Victoria to get involved in competition within this nationwide series which visits all surfing states in Australia.
As much as the event encourages a fun day at the beach it is also aimed at pushing the grom’s competitive side with the respective winners of the Under 14 boys’ and girls’ divisions from each event receiving an invite to attend an all-expenses-paid, three-day Woolworths Surfer Grom Comps National Final Surf Camp at the Surfing Australia High-Performance Centre (HPC).
With previous Woolworths Surfer Grom Comp winners including former Australian Champions Xavier Huxtable (Jan Juc) and Ellie Harrison (Barwon Heads), the event has proven to be a critical part of the junior development pathway in Victoria.
“The Woolworths Surfer Grom Comps have always provided a great platform for the next generation of competitive surfers in Victoria,” explained Surfing Victoria CEO Adam Robertson.
The event is scheduled to begin at 7:30 am on Saturday, 12th of November, at Torquay Surf Beach (SLSC).
