PSC SUPERGROMS

Junior Surf Contests

Supergroms

24 November 2017

What a run of weather and waves. Things were shaping up for a great introductory contest at Gunnamatta this Sunday (very small waves, clean conditions) however the weather system has shifted a bit and its now looking like thunderstorms and a change mid-morning.

As such we will postpone to our final date of the season - Sunday, December 3rd. Early forecast suggests a building swell and favourable winds for Westernport Bay. If we have to get creative we will find some waves as required.

Further details to come on Wednesday or Thursday next week regarding this, as well as the season presentation afterwards.

 

November 2017

With only 1 contest left to run for the 2017 season its looking like we will have to utilise the back-up dates. Unfortunately the weather has shifted into an easterly pattern which as most of you know means terrible conditions at Point Leo (generally small, gutless swells and bad winds).

We have 3 dates set aside so are confident that we will be able to enjoy one more contest before the season is over, with a presentation BBQ afterwards ( including t-shirt collection and trophy/prizes for all competitors ).

Comp 4 : November 26th
Back-up date : December 3rd

Please spread the word amongst members and friends. We will provide an update closer next week regarding the 26th.
Thanks, PSC Supergrom Committee

 

Comp 3 : Sunday 15th October

We are all systems go for Sunday 15th October - the forecast is calling for a moderate swell with light winds.

The high tide is quite early (8am) so we will be starting at 7.45am. Please meet at the Crunchie Point carpark.

For the older divisions we have Adam Morris (top PSC surfer) coming to take the guys and girls for a surf after their finals. The sausage sizzle will be going as per usual.

**Note, gate fees are payable at Point Leo so please bring some coins.

Look forward to seeing everyone on Sunday morning,
PSC Supergroms Committe.

October 2017 Update

Another long, cold winter is behind us and that means we will be recommencing the Supergrom season ASAP.

We have just received confirmation from Point Leo Foreshore that the below dates have been approved to run our final 2 contests, both Sundays.

Comp 3 : October 15th : 8am start ( backup October 22nd )
Comp 4 : November 14th ( back-up November 19th )
Reserve dates: November 26th and December 3rd

**We will obviously pick the best dates and will provide an update mid-next week after the forecast is updated.

We are looking forward to the next two contests and currently organizing t-shirts, trophies and prizes for the presentation afternoon (again to be held following the final contest).

Feel free to contact Lachy on 0408 362 236 if you have any queries ( or email on supergroms@live.com ... we will check it regularly until the end of the season )

Spread the word, Cheers Lachy

 

May 2017 Update

We are again faced with a tricky forecast for this Sunday ( May 7 ) Supergoms Contest. It looks like there should be heaps of surf but SW winds and forecast rain in the morning.

We will meet at Crunchie Point carpark at 7.45am. It is likely we will utilise Treloars across the hightide but please note that the Point Leo Foreshore committee have requested we access from Crunchies due to campers at East Creek.

Our committee will check locations and conditions early and should there be any concern we will send through an email update by 7am sharp to save any inconvenience.

Thanks for working with us, fingers crossed the rain stays away as there should be some very enjoyable waves through the morning for the groms.

 

April 2017 Update

Again, apologies for such late notice on the postponement of the last comp. Lachy was in the Mentawais for 2 weeks and unfortunately the Eastons had a family emergency which meant Claire had to travel abroad at short notice (and Skip isn't really a computer person!). Thanks to everyone for understanding ... we were probably lucky the conditions weren't very good or we would have been really caught out.

Onto more important matters - Comp 2 has been rescheduled for Sunday May 7th with a back-up date of the 21st. A big thanks to Tony at Pt Leo Foreshore for helping organise some additional dates at short notice.

We will communicate closer to the 7th regarding conditions and start time. Fingers crossed for a good swell and some Autumn sunshine.

**Ideally we will run one more contest before the winter break, and another 2 after with a presentation event in late November. This will obviously be determined by the surf conditions.

 

1st Contest Season 2017, 11th February, Crunchy Point

A big thanks to all who braved the crummy weather and made the most of our first Supergroms comp, we were stoked with the turn-out and really impressed with the level of surfing in some fun yet challenging conditions at Crunchie Point. A particular shout-out to the under 13 boys who rode a few solid waves around at Sometimes before copping the worst of the tide/sweep on the main break at Crunchies - impressive ocean management skills guys.

Just a quick email to update you - we are only able to use March 26th for our next comp. The Point Leo Foreshore Committee are unable to approve the Labour day weekend as it is a particularly busy period for the park - fair enough.

The next contest is to TBC due to postponement. Stay tuned groms!

 

February 2017

Meet at 10am at Crunchy Point for registration.

Membership for the Supergroms season is $30 per surfer (or $50 if surfing main PSC contests as well). Membership includes sausage sizzle at each of the four events and trophy and t-shirt at season's end.

**The first PSC contest for the 2017 season is this Saturday at Gunnamatta or Rye Back Beach (unless otherwise notified).

This year we will be re-introducing the Grom division for both boys and girls (13 and under as at 31/12/2017). We strongly encourage any Supergroms who are interested in taking the next step to also attend the PSC contests.

The club runs 7 aggregate events each season with top 5 results counting. Surfers need to register by 10am at the beach and if anyone needs further information they can contact me directly on 0408362236 on or before Saturday (Lachy).

This weekend is forecast to be 2-3ft on Saturday on the open beach breaks and light onshore. Parents are allowed to provide water safety during the event. We will find the best conditions for the groms as early as possible and if conditions are unfavorable for the Grom division at any of the PSC events we will look to move to a more suitable location.

Thanks and see you all on Sunday (or Saturday),
PSC Supergrom Committee

December 2016

Many thanks to all who surfed, and to the parents who helped out throughout the year. We had a great run of surf in the end (despite some challenges pre-Easter!!), and everyone seemed pretty stoked with the program.

Thanks again to Volcom, Rip Curl, Palmers and Oakley for contributing prizes for the presentation event and supporting junior surfing on the Mornington Peninsula.

We will work with the Point Leo Foreshore Committee to organise some dates starting in February 2017 for our next season.
