Go Ride A Wave and Noosa Surf Lessons are proud to be associated and run the Woolworths SurfGroms in Noosa. SurfGroms programs cater to groms between the ages of 5-12 years old, nationally.
This program not only teaches kids an exhilarating new sport, but educates them in ALL aspects of ocean awareness and beach safety.
SurfGroms offers the ultimate opportunity for those looking to learn, experience and enjoy the timeless exhilaration of surfing whilst also gaining a real understanding of water awareness and surf safety that will stay with them for the rest of their lives.
Every child registered for a SurfGroms program will receive a one-size fits all hooded Rip Curl towel and their own online copy of the SurfGroms logbook to help them track their skill progression and work on activities at home. This logbook will be attached to your confirmation email in the form of an editable PDF that can be completed on a device, or printed off at home if preferred. For convenience, all hooded towels will be sent to our surf schools and will be available for collection during your attendance at the program.
Rip Curl rash vests will be available at each surf school for SurfGroms to use during each session. However, unlike previous years these will be returned to the school after use. Participants do not keep their rash vests this year, but instead get a fantastic hooded towel that should prove very useful after each session. Soft foam beginner surfboards are supplied by Go Ride A Wave for use during the program.
We have 2 types of Woolworths SurfGrom programs:
- 4 day intensive programs during school holiday times with sessions running daily from Monday to Thursday.
- Term programs which are usually one day a week for 4 weeks on Saturdays or Sundays.
- Classes run daily from 8am to 9.30am
We will provide wetsuits in winter and rashies in summer.
