Grommets to shine at surf camps

SURFING Australia's High Performance Centre will be holding a series of quality 'Grommet Surf Programs' during early July.

The programs cater to under-17 boys and girls who have begun their competitive careers and are looking to develop their skills to make them better all-round surfers and competitors.

They will also culminate in two of Australia's most prestigious Grommet events - the Billabong Occy Grom Comp on the Gold Coast from July 4, and the Rusty Gromfest at Lennox Head from July 10.

“Claim your best competition result by training with Australia's best coaches,” Surfing Australia said

“It's the perfect time to integrate tomorrow's future surfers into these programs ahead of these two upcoming competitions.”

Practical surf sessions will be video-analysed and include surf-specific fitness training along with high-level judging seminars focusing on surfing heats to the modern criteria.

The programs also include: technique, wave usage, how to surf to judging criteria, competition preparation and strategies, fitness testing and stretching, wave selection, time management, psychological approach and competition analysis.
