WEETBIX SURFGROMS – BULLI / WOLLONGONG / SHELLHARBOUR
Weetbix SurfGroms is the foundation of Surfing Australia’s Development pathway for junior surfing in our country. It is widely regarding as the best junior sports program in the country along side the likes of AFL Auskick, Milo Cricket and the ARL Foundation program.
The idea of Weetbix SurfGroms is to get kids involved in the sport of surfing and are supported in a safe, non-competitive and inclusive program. With beach games that are aimed at improving co-ordination and social skills, theory components that introduce the kids to oceanography, weather conditions and wave types and practical skill sets to learn, the kids are nurtured with a holistic approach to surfing in mind.
Weetbix SurfGroms has 5 levels starting at 1 for the absolute beginners and focuses on water safety and the basics of catching a wave and standing up, right through to Level 5 where the SurfGroms are paddling in and taking off on 4-6 foot waves and doing manoeuvres.

AST Surf School Locations
When booking into a surf lesson with AST Surf School you have the choice of the following spectacular locations.
1. Bulli, NSW
Bulli Beach is on the Northern end of the Wollongong City coastline. In fact, it’s only about an hour drive South of central Sydney which makes it a perfect destination for a trip out of the city. Driving South along the Grand Pacific Drive you can get a glimpse of the beautiful coastline this region has to offer, stop and have some lunch at Scarborough Hotel (best pub ever) and be sitting on beautiful Bulli Beach before you even think about it. Coming from the South its only about 15 minutes drive from Wollongong City centre making it a perfect beach to escape the crowds.
2. Wollongong, NSW
Welcome to Wollongong City’s premier beach location. Situated in the heart of Wollongong, City Beach (South Beach as its known to locals) is surrounded by cafe’s, parks, bars and restaurants and is an ideal location for anyone seeking some sunshine and a day at the beach. There’s a bike track and walking path that runs along the ocean and is great for a bit of people watching, there are BBQ facilities that are free to use, wading pools to swim in, rock pools to check out and last but definitely not least, there are great waves!
3. The Farm, Shellharbour
There’s no cows on this farm!! There used to be though which is how this beach got it’s name. Actually when you see this beach you will wonder why ‘in thy Lords name’ the farmer actually sold his farm! The old farm that used to be here is now called Killalea State Park and the only history that can be seen are a few foundations of barns from a bygone era that used to stand here. While past surfers used to make the trek through the old farm and pay 20 cents at the gate to get in, it is now hidden from the road by a large housing estate that anyone can get to. It is managed by State Parks and is a beautiful mix of manicured grassland, lagoons, rolling hills, a campsite and two sensational surf beaches. One of these beaches is called ‘The Farm’, for obvious and recently explained reasons and the other is called ‘Mystics’ aptly named after the fogs that roll over the cliffs in Winter time from which Mystical (and perfect) waves appear. While Mystics is strictly for ‘advanced’ surfers only due to its incredible power and thick hollow barrels, ‘The Farm’ has a much more forgiving set up and presents beautiful lines of swell and turns them into peaks right down the beach. The South End here is the main break for the more advanced, but only a 5 minute walk up to the North End will give you long shallow rolling waves… perfect for beginners!
