It was awful weather, but that didn’t stop 10 local kids from hitting the beach in the Gromms Memorial Comp held on the 18th. The kids gave it their all and had an amazing time, doing their best in front of judges Mick, Shane and Jake.

All the kids received a medal and a prize for participating and were fuelled up by Kirstie and Laurel’s BBQ. A great day was had by all and thanks must go to BJ for organising everything.

This years Memorial Classic will be held on December 2 at Double Island Point. The group will be camping at the old Freshwater Campground for the weekend.

This is the 31st year the Memorial has been held and is the highlight of the boardriders year. It is a real family event and gives surfers and locals, old and new, a chance to get together to remember loved ones lost and celebrate this amazing area we live in.

May the waves be with you.
