Surfing Australia Resources
nudie SurfGroms provides educators with the perfect opportunity to teach students skills that they wouldn’t learn in a classroom.
Surf Coaches, Surf School owners, parents or Primary school teachers can also join the nudie SurfGroms Community Ambassador Program (SGCAP) which aims to resource, recognise and reward community members who strongly promote the nudie SurfGroms program.
The program will aim to establish an alliance between surf schools, primary schools and Surfing Australia and our State bodies to develop and promote the nudie SurfGroms program in the classroom and in the junior participation sporting landscape.
