FINAL NSW BASED WOOLWORTHS SURFER GROMS COMP FOR 2018 TO KICK OFF IN KIAMA THIS WEEKEND.
The final NSW based Woolworths Surfer Groms Comps Series presented by Pic’s Peanut Butter for the year will hit the NSW South Coast this weekend.
Over 100 competitors are expected to compete in the two-day event at Kiama, which will see some of the nation's most promising young surfers competing for a range of prizes.
“This season of the Woolworths Surfer Groms Comps Series presented by Pic’s Peanut Butter has been one of the most exciting seasons we’ve seen to date,” said Surfing NSW CEO Luke Madden. “In the last event, we saw Fletcher Kelleher claim a hat-trick of victories and five-year-old Leihani Kaloha Zoric take out the Under-10 Girls division, as well as a multitude of other impressive performances. We predict that this last NSW event at Kiama will build on this excitement.”
The main base for event four of the Woolworths Surfer Groms Comps Series presented by Pic’s Peanut Butter is Bombo with backup locations of Jones Beach and Kiama Surf Beach.
All competitors are advised to call the event hotline (0458 247 212) by 6.45am on the days of competition to confirm location and running order.
