SurfGroms – Solitary Islands Surf School

Solitary Islands School is recognised as one of the premier delivery centre’s for SurfGroms in Australia. We not only boast some of the best location for kids surfing but also have one of the most diverse and experienced coaching teams

Located on the Coffs Coast roughly halfway between Sydney and Brisbane we deliver nudie SurfGroms at 5 locations and have plenty of program options available from daily Holiday Programs to weekly school groups.  Designed by Surfing Australia and supported by the Australian Sports Commission, SurfGroms aims at teaching a range of ocean safety skills, surfing technique and general ocean awareness in a fun, social and non-competitive environment.

SurfGroms is a national Junior development program for 5-12yr olds that encourages kids to participate in surfing around Australia. Surfing is a great way to enjoy our beach environment safely, whilst also ingraining into them a healthy lifestyle that is proudly Australian!  If you’re looking for a fun, safe and healthy activity for your Groms and they are ready to hit the water, this learn to surf program is everything you’re looking for and more.

Every SurfGroms lesson is designed purposefully to create a positive and supportive learning environment so that every participant can experience the confidence and freedom of surfing for a lifetime.
