What is SurfGroms
- Weet-Bix SurfGroms is a national junior development program for 5-12yr olds that encourages kids to participate in surfing around Australia

- Every participant receives a free Quiksilver backpack containing a Rash Vest & Hat. The pack also contains Wahu beach toys, a Weet-Bix bowl and Banana Boat Sunscreen
- Every Weet-Bix SurfGrom will receive a logbook; a certificate; a Weet-Bix SurfGroms membership card; and a graded wristband that reflects their level of achievement throughout the program!
- The Weet-Bix SurfGroms website hosts a powerful and secure social networking platform that allows registered Weatbix SurfGroms to communicate with one another; upload photos and videos; and stay in touch with all of their surfing mates
- Weet-Bix SurfGroms is the first cutting-edge national junior participation program, never before done anywhere in the world!
Weet-Bix SurfGroms feature 5 distinct skill levels, each with its own set of objectives and goals. Each level needs to be achieved before moving onto the next.
Level 1 is designed for complete beginners as an introduction to surfing, through to Level 5 which is conducted in 3-4ft conditions, and in which participants must demonstrate a competency in linking manoeuvres together on the open face of a wave.
Throughout the Weet-Bix SurfGroms program and each of the 5 skill levels, there is a significant focus on Ocean Awareness and Beach Safety.
Surf conditions, etiquette, first aid, and basic surf rescue skills have all been incorporated into the Weet-Bix SurfGroms program. Before any Weet-Bix SurfGrom receives a completion certificate and their graded wristband for each level, they must have successfully demonstrated all of the relevant ocean awareness and beach safety skills.
