ALL LEVELS: SurfGroms will be divided into SMALL groups.

Supported by six-time women’s world surfing champion Stephanie Gilmore and world champion men’s surfer Tom Carroll, WEET-BIX SurfGroms adopts approach to learning that not only equips your child with surfing skills but encourages participation by making it fun.

My 10 year old daughter has been learning to surf through these guys and she's had an absolute ball. They make it fun and enjoyable for the kids but teach them also beach safety etc. My daughter looks forward to summer approaching so she can head back!
