4th Annual Super Grom Surf Festival | Events
To kick off the summer season, the Florida Surfing Association is bringing the 4th Annual Super Grom Surf Festival, presented by Beaches Hospitality Network to the south side of the Jacksonville Beach Pier this Saturday, June 16th from 10:00am till 2:00pm.
The Florida Surfing Association is happy to announce that Beaches Hospitality Network has come on board to assist in bringing the Super Grom Surf Festival to Jacksonville Beach for three Saturday’s out of the summer. Beaches Hospitality Network will help out in gathering community support in providing the t-shirts and medals for the participants. This partnership will enhance the festival atmosphere by bringing out more local vendors and artists to the beach.
Keeping intact with the Super Grom standards, the free events will provide the children with one on one surf instruction from Florida’s top professional surfers, a lesson on water safety, an event t-shirt, a medal, free lunch, and a fun-filled day on the beach. The festivals are open to children 10 and under and must have a parent or legal guardian to accompany them at all times. New to the beach this summer will be Woody’s BBQ, local clothing companies, Cliff Bar and Honest Tea giving out product samples. Food is being provided by Taco Lu, Honey Baked Hams, Bojangle’s Chicken and Oriental Karinderia.
The medals are provided by Angie’s Groms and T-shirts are being provided by Two Dudes Seafood, Twice the Ice, Lifestyles Realty and Great Atlantic Outfitters.
Even with the large surf and currents forecasted for Saturday the emphasis will be on having fun and being safe. There will be lots of games, giveaways, and one on one surf instruction close to the beach. This is a dynamic event with plenty of photo opportunities!
Through participation or sponsorship, the Super Grom Surf Festival Series is a great way to get involved in the Beaches Community. Each festival is limited to 150 participants and are filled on a first-come, first-serve basis. Starting this year, “groms” may only enter one of the Super Grom series events. This event is totally FREE and is a way for everyone to give back to the community and introduce the sport of surfing to kids. The next two Super Grom Surf Festivals will be July 14th and August 11th. For more information visit www.floridasurfing.org or email firstname.lastname@example.org
