This past Thursday was the official opening for the sixth consecutive season of Surfing Australia’s marquee junior surfing program, the Weet-Bix SurfGroms, and Rip Curl is pleased to announce that we have signed on as a major sponsor for the next three years.
“At Rip Curl, we understand that surfing is the most fun a kid can have,” said Neil Ridgway, Rip Curl’s Group Advertising and Marketing Chairman.
“Bringing that to the next generation of surfers through the SurfGroms program is something we’re stoked to be involved with. With that in mind, grommets are probably the most important surfers in the world and catching a wave is a great way to start the journey.”
Since Weet-Bix SurfGroms first launched in October 2011, more than 60,000 Australian children have experienced the thrill of surfing for the first time, and registrations for the latest programs are now open – just in time for summer.
