Groms get another chance to impress with new Coffs comp
COFFS Harbour has been chosen to host one of 10 rounds of a new groms surf series.
The brand new Woolworths Surfer Groms Comps Series kicks off at Cronulla on September 1 with the third event allocated to the Coffs Coast at a beach to be decided on October 7-8.
Nearly 100 competitors are expected to compete in each of the events and Surfing Australia spokesman Jack White said some of the nation's most promising young surfers will be chasing a range of prizes.
"This national series of events forms part of our sport development pathway and offers grommets the opportunity to compete in professionally run events in a fun environment,” he said.
The series caters for surfers from under-8 to under 14.
Respective winners of the under-14 boys' and girls' divisions in Coffs Harbour will receive an invite to attend an all-expenses-paid, three-day surf camp at the Surfing Australia High-Performance Centre.
