CASUARINA/NSW (March 5th/2018): Six lucky groms from Weet-Bix SurfGroms were VIP guests last weekend at Bells Beach as winners of the Rip Curl Grom Of The Season Competition.

Surfing Australia affiliated surf schools nominated their Grom Of The Season directly with the Weet-Bix SurfGroms program presented by Rip Curl. Groms were nominated for a range of reasons, from overall froth levels in the water through to keeping their beach clean, helping fellow groms or simply sharing the stoke around.

Simon Smith - In2Surf (NSW)

Samuel McCullum - South Coast Surf Academy (SA)

The group toured Bells Beach including the Rip Curl Grandstand to watch the world’s best surfers and met surfing royalty Kelly Slater, Mick Fanning, Matt Wilkinson, Tyler and Owen Wright, Sebastian Zietz and many others. 

They even went for a surf at Torquay’s Cosy Corner with Kirra-Belle Olsen and Xavier Huxtable through Go Ride A Wave Surf School.
