Surfing South Australia Launches into Summer with Vegemite SurfGroms - A World First National Junior Participation Program

(GLENELG BEACH / AUSTRALIA, Friday 2nd December, 2011): With summer here Surfing South Australia is excited to be apart of the VEGEMITE SurfGroms - the first national junior participation program of its type available anywhere in the world.
 
VEGEMITE SurfGroms will offer youngsters aged 5-12 years old an opportunity to develop strong ocean awareness and beach safety skills at a very influential period in their lives, whilst also developing a proficiency in surfing that they will enjoy and embrace for a lifetime.

In a first for the VEGEMITE brand, they will take naming rights to SurfGroms, a new national junior participation program hitting the beaches for the first time this summer.

“Surfing is an authentic Australian sport and lifestyle that is part of the Australian ethos and culture, so for this reason it was important we partnered with the right fit sponsors to ensure the success of the SurfGroms program,” said Surfing Australia Chief Executive Officer Andrew Stark.
 
Every kid signing up to VEGEMITE SurfGroms will receive an awesome QUIKSILVER backpack bursting with surfing merchandise including a QUIKSILVER t-shirt, hat, rash vest, towel and wrist band, plus two WAHU beach products and a tube of VEGEMITE Spread.
Six Surfing South Australia affiliated surf schools will deliver the VEGEMITE Surf Groms program this summer through out South Australia, right from metro locations such as West Beach and Glenelg, to Middleton and the Yorke Peninsula.
 
Parents will be able to register their children in the program and source information from the VEGEMITE SurfGroms website at www.surfgroms.com
