During the recent school holidays a group of children from the Illawarra region supported through the Australian Kookaburra Kids Foundation participated in a specially organised Surfing Australia VEGEMITE SurfGroms program.
Surfing Australia instructors hosted the activity day teaching the children some of the basics of surfing and beach safety.
Decked out in their SurfGrom gear the kids were exited on the beach learning the basics and couldn’t wait to hit the surf to try out their new skills to catch a wave. Most kids mastered standing up – which was fantastic to see!
This is the 3rd year surfing Australia has donated their time and sponsored the activity day; we can’t thank them enough for their ongoing support and for delivering such an awesome day for Kookaburra Kids.
Thank you so much for the surf lesson today. Brooke* had such an amazing time and she was so happy. Her confidence is just getting better and better. It meant so much for us to have become part of your program. It is awesome for her and great to see her so happy and having fun, and meeting new kids. It means so much to us. Thank you
