Yesterday was our 4th Annual Grom Day held at Indian Beach in Ecola State Park. This year’s turnout was solid with tons of kids getting in the water. We were stoked to see how many kids were in the water, catching waves. This year was sunny, with small waves, perfect for learning. Even better, more than a few kids got some really good longer rides and with style no less!
What is Grom Day?
Grom day is an annual tradition for the shop where kids, at any experience level, can learn the basics of surfing and general ocean knowledge from one of our instructors Tony Gardner, as well as some of our team riders and employees.
Most of all, it’s a day to just have fun in the ocean!
Do the Kids Need to Have Surf Experience?
No surfing experience is needed but it is important to be comfortable in the ocean and have some basic swimming skills.
Do We Need to Bring Anything?
Nope! All the gear is provided, free of cost, including boards, wetsuits, booties, gloves, hoods, and snacks. If you have any gear you would like to use from home you’re welcome to use it.
When Is the Next Grom Day?
If you’re interested in participating next year, be sure to follow us on social media either through Instagram or Facebook and we’ll be sure to announce the details of when and where it will be held, as the time comes closer.
Generally, though, we aim for a weekend in June/July with favorable conditions for learning.
Thanks to our team riders, employees, and friends who helped out this year in the water and on the beach. Special thanks also to Rise and Grind PNW for hooking it up and bringing down coffee for everyone!
