  • This is an intensive training program for girls that want to advance their surfing skills. We will plan to be in the water as much as possible, however Coach Duerr will add an on-land cross fit training program when needed, depending on the weather and ocean conditions. 


  • Every Grom team girl should have their own equipment ( board, leash, wetsuit )

  • Must have experience catching waves on your own. Independent surfing ability is required and a must. This is not for the beginner surfer who needs assistance in the ocean.
