Ultimate Pathway to Learn to Surf, GROM SQUAD launches!

We are hugely excited to announce the launch of our GROM SQUAD program, the ultimate pathway to learn to surf, and learn about safety and etiquette in the ocean! A Program that has been renewed for 2024 thanks to the support of Decathlon UK. 

The program follows 5 levels, all named after famous surf breaks. Surfers progress at their own pace, with open access for anyone to be a part of GROM SQUAD. Sessions led by qualified surf coaches who sign off each level, and access to free certificates within the Surfing England membership portal. 

A newly launched initiative offering a GROM SQUAD towel and patches for each level, which can be sewn onto the towel as a stellar sign of achievement. Plus, a sticker for your board, to show you’re a part of the crew! Both add ons are available to buy via the membership system. Log in or join here to access – in the top right corner, click MERCH, and place your order.

Now live in our membership portal, Surf Coaches, Accredited Surf Schools, and Affiliated Surf Clubs can order logbooks and coaches’ guides. Perfectly preparing you to start you on your GROM SQUAD journey! Just ask your local centre to order you a logbook.

GROM SQUAD is inclusive of all surfers, and anyone can join the program. It doesn’t matter if you want to cruise through white water, or if you want to tear up the turns. The program welcomes all levels and abilities. It’s all about being a part of the GROM SQUAD community and having fun!
