Groms ready for Trigg Beach chal­lenge

Augusta Margaret River Times - - Sport -

Mar­garet River ju­nior surfers will rise to the chal­lenge once more at Trigg Beach this week­end. Surfers in­clud­ing Mar­garet River’s Ry Dempsey (pic­tured) will com­pete at the Wahu Surfer Groms com­pe­ti­tion as part of a na­tional se­ries.

The WA event of the Wahu Surfer Groms com­pe­ti­tion will take place this week­end at Trigg Beach.

The com­pe­ti­tion show­cases grow­ing tal­ent in the “mi­cro grom­met” age group, with chil­dren up to 14 com­pet­ing for a place at the three-day Surf­ing Aus­tralia High-Per­for­mance Cen­tre coach­ing camp.

Mar­garet River guns Ry Dempsey and Mad­die Ca­wood will be among the WA con­tin­gent, along­side Yallingup’s Reilly Smith.

Surf­ing WA coach Mark Clift said the com­pe­ti­tions were “su­per ex­cit­ing for the kids”.

“Whether it’s a grom throw­ing on a coloured rash vest for the very first time, or those chas­ing the trip to the HPC, the event al­ways pro­vides a great mix of tal­ent and par­tic­i­pa­tion,” he said.

The na­tional com­pe­ti­tion in­volves more than 800 chil­dren, with WA the fi­nal event.
