We welcomed a number of new little “Grommets” to our surfing team this term which put a buzz through the surfing group.

Mother Nature threw us some tough conditions for our Aboriginal Surfing Program at Maroubra Beach with large seas, strong winds and very dangerous beach conditions our program was cancelled 4 weeks out of the 8-week program. When we did surf the kids gave it their best to ride the waves and learn the art of surfing. Congratulations to our four team members who took out special awards for their efforts. We were very blessed to be joined by retired professional Australian Tour Surfer and Maroubra local charger, Lynette McKenzie who helped out with pushing kids onto waves, sharing her surfing expertise and keeping the kids safe in the ocean. Lynette, we are very honoured to have you join our program. Welcome to Weave’s Kool Kids family!

Surf camp is just around the corner so the surfing vibe is still alive at Kool Kids. Well done surf team, looking forward to seeing you at Surf Camp. Thank you to our supporters Surfing NSW & Surf Camp Australia for making this program a success. A shout out to Dan & Wil, from Let’s Go Surfing, for their efforts and commitment to our Kool Kids surfing program.
