Cronulla Gromtag Qualifier to decide final four teams  

Form Guide

Boardriding clubs from Bondi to Ulladulla will be heading to North Cronulla Beach, Sydney this weekend for the Triple Bull Cronulla Gromtag. The third and final qualifying event of the Inaugural Gromtag Australian Series will see fourteen teams vying for a top four finish to advance to the Australian Championships.

With five surfers representing each boardriding club, Gromtag offers a rare opportunity for Under 18’s to represent their local club. Cronulla Sharks, Elouera and Bondi Boardriders have entered multiple teams spreading the opportunity amongst their junior ranks to represent.

Fourteen-year-old Jarvis Earle is looking forward to competing for Elouera Boardriders at North Cronulla, “It’s great to represent your local boardriding club especially since we are competing in Cronulla, I hope everyone comes to watch and support us”, Earle said. “You really feel the pressure in tag team events as you only have a short amount of time to get a few good scores. The Gromtag format is exciting as it relies on everyone doing their best and not taking too much time. Usually it’s a race at the end to run back up the beach to finish and it’s always fun cheering on your mates”.

With so many talented junior surfers in the region and the popular tag team format being used anything is possible when it comes to performing on the day and the series so far has produced some interesting results. Curl Curl Boardriders upset the more fancied teams to win the Northern Beaches Gromtag and on the Gold Coast Burleigh Heads Boardriders battled with event favorites Snappers Rocks Surfriders right to the very end before Snapper finished on top. The combination of every wave counting and time management really builds pressure which some surfers thrive on.

Boardriding Clubs competing at North Cronulla Beach include Ulladulla, Werri Beach, Jones Beach, Southbridge, Woonona, Sandon Point, Scarborough, Cronulla Sharks, Elouera, Bronte and Bondi.

Competition will begin at 8.00am on Saturday at North Cronulla Beach with the Final scheduled for 3.00pm, which will be followed by the presentation at Beach Burrito Cronulla.
