Surfing NSW has announced a new Groms event, sponsored by Billabong and scheduled for the April school holidays.
Divisions include (male and female): the U/8’s Mixed (Parent assist), U/10 (Parent assist) Boys and Girls plus U/12, U/14, U/16, U/18 Boys and Girls. Prizes, food stalls and entertainment will be a part of the four-day tournament.
The action will start on Easter Monday April 21, the four-day U/18s event for male and female surfers will offer a whopping 11 divisions and be hosted in the best conditions the Coffs Harbour region has to offer.
The competition format will allow each contestant to surf twice before the highest placed surfers are seeded into a four-person heat format, emulating the ASP (Association of Surfing Professionals) World Qualifying Series draws.
The Coffs Harbour region is ideal; the area is littered with north and south-facing breaks that cater for a variety of weather and surf conditions, plus the timing of the event allows for families and parents to attend during school holidays.
