Weet - Bix SurfGroms

WEET-BIX SurfGroms is a national junior development program, aimed at 5-12 year olds.

Apollo Bay surf and kayak operate in the beautiful environment of Apollo Bay on the Great Ocean Road. Lessons are conducted on our safe surf beaches nestled in the foothills of Apollo Bay. Through this program we aim to create a fun and enjoyable learning experience. As the program progresses your child will develop in confidence, learning the importance of ocean awareness and beach safety.  

All activities are conducted in waist deep water, providing a safe and comfortable environment in which children can develop their confidence and skill level.

Minimum numbers are required to run this program.
