Frequently Asked Questions
How many surf coaches are in attendance per program?
We have ratio of 1:8, however this is rarely the case as we like to reduce these ratios further to ensure maximum enjoyment and success in the water. In addition to the program instructors, there may also be parent volunteers helping out both in the water and on the beach and supporting the coaches in delivering your child’s program.
My child is not a strong swimmer, can he/she still join in?
Your child needs to be water confident to join Weet-Bix SurfGroms. It is our expectation that your child can:
- Float unassisted
- Submerge without fear (open eyes under water and demonstrate breath control – blow bubbles underwater)
- Free movement – move around confidently in an ocean environment independently and in a group situation
All Level 1 activities are conducted in shallow water (waist depth) only. This allows those with a limited swimming ability to participate in the program, enabling them to develop their skills and confidence before moving up to the next skill level.
What can I do as a parent to get involved?
As a parent, if you wish to get involved in Weet-Bix SurfGroms, you can become a Weet-Bix SurfGroms Volunteer, and offer help. This offers a great opportunity for you to learn more skills, share your expertise and experience with others, and spend some quality time with your children on the beach!
What to Bring
You don’t really need to bring much to Weet-Bix SurfGroms, but try to remember the following items:
- Swimwear/surfgroms rash shirt
- Drinking water
- Your booking voucher (printed or on your phone)
- A HUGE smile!!….
