Skill Levels

Weet-Bix SurfGroms features 5 distinct skill levels in surfing and 3 distinct skills levels in stand-up paddleboarding, each level with its own set of objectives and goals. Each level must be achieved and signed off by your coach before moving onto the next.

Level 1 is designed for complete beginners as an introduction to surfing and the ocean environment.  At the other end of the scale, Level 5 is conducted in 3-4ft conditions, and in which participants must demonstrate a competency in linking manoeuvres together on the open face of a wave and demonstrating a thorough understanding of ocean awareness and beach safety.

Surf Safety

Throughout the Weet-Bix SurfGroms program and each of the 5 skill levels, there is a significant focus on Ocean Awareness and Beach Safety.

Surf conditions, etiquette, first aid, and basic surf rescue skills have all been incorporated into the Weet-Bix SurfGroms program.  Before any Weet-Bix SurfGrom receives a completion certificate, they must have successfully demonstrated all of the relevant ocean awareness and beach safety skills for each level.
