IMAGINE still being in primary school, but getting the chance to meet your hero…
Eight Vegemite SurfGroms are on their way to the Gold Coast as VIP guests to the Quiksilver Pro this Saturday, where they will get a chance to meet and surf with some of the professionals competing.
The kids, who are part of the national junior surfing program for 5-12 year olds, each entered a photo into the Nikon Coolpix competition and were chosen as the best.

The prize includes flights for one child and one adult plus one night’s accommodation at Coolangatta as well as a Quiksilver Pro event merchandise pack, exclusive behind the scenes tour of the event site and the chance to meet and surf with some of the professional surfers competing.
They will also have access to the best seats in town on the VEGEMITE Mightiest Seat on the Beach, which will provide an uninterrupted, elevated view of the competition area.
SurfGroms provides children with an opportunity to develop strong ocean awareness and beach safety skills, while also developing a proficiency in surfing.
More than 24,000 children across Australia have enjoyed the program since it started in October, 2011.
