Surf Groms

Surf & Sun Surf Grom programs are our most popular kids program. The programs are on weekends in school term and week days during the school holidays, with one instructor to a maximum of 8 children.

Programs are generally 4-5 days and lessons are 2 hours per day so kids can learn aspects of surf safety, ocean awareness, rips, waves, surf etiquette, catching waves, standing up, and paddling. The programs have the same group of children learning together for the entire program working through a progressive log book where they receive a wrist band after achieving each of the 5 stages.

We include expert instruction from a qualified surf tutor, as well as all equipment including soft safe surfboard, rash top, full length wetsuit and sun cream. All kids are sent a cool pack from Surfing Australia which includes a Quiksilver or Roxy backpack, rash top, cap, water bottle and more goodies.

It’s a fun way to be introduced to the sport and foster a sense of achievement in your child.

Expert surf tutors

All of our surf instructors hold Level 1 surf coach certificates, and are up to date with first aid and surf rescue techniques. Every instructor must also obtain a Working with Children Check, a comprehensive criminal record check for people in child related work which is important for parents to know that their kids are in a safe environment.

Many of our instructors are also qualified school teachers specializing in outdoor education so they understand the importance of making lessons interactive and fun.
