Grom club is all about kids having fun whilst learning to surf or progressing to their next level.We are hoping to be back again in 2021! This page gives you some more information about clubs and will be updated in the new year. Our grom club has grown! For the last 3 years we’ve regularly had over 20 kids join our sessions.
WHY GROM CLUB?
It’s a place to learn to surf or improve in a fun, supportive and supervised session. It’s also a great way to stay active and meet new friends. When it’s flat we still go in the water and do things like build surfboard bridges! At the end of the year we have a mega fun session where we celebrate what we’ve learnt and there’s usually free hot chocolate involved.
A lot of kids that come to club want to surf for fun and that’s absolutely what we’re about.
If a child wants to compete though we’ll also encourage and help them with this too.
What age can my child join?
Age 7 and up
When and where?
2021 details to be confirmed.
We are likely to run sessions as we have for the last 3 years. Weekly from Mid April – September, on a week night, 6pm -7pm.
We usually alternate between rest bay and coney beach due to the tides but a full list will be posted in advance.
Does my child need their own board and wetsuit ?
Boards are included in the price of grom club sessions! Of course if your child has their own or board they can use it! We can usually offer free use of wetsuits for a couple weeks whilst they decide if they like it.
