The new surf competition that will be held all around Australia put on by Subway and Billabong has caught the attention of all the groms.
Joel Parkinson and Laura Enever are the ambassadors for the junior surf competition. These surfing icons are inspirations to all young surfers, which encourages kids to compete.
Everyone loves Subway and with them sponsoring it makes it a lot more exciting.
These days, a lot of the junior comps age divisions don’t allow surfers over the age of 14 to compete but the Subway Summer Surf Series gives the teens an extra chance to take part in doing what they love.
This competition is great because it is held at a lot of the major breaks around Australia. This means that more kids will be able to compete as they don’t have to travel long distances to the break. They just go to where the comp is held at a beach near them.

The Subway Summer Surf Series organised by Surfing Australia will hold 13 events around Australia this summer showcasing the country’s best male and female surfers in the under 16 and 18 age divisions.
The new series represents a link in the ‘pathway to the podium’ developed by Surfing Australia, with surfers now able to progress from the VEGEMITE SurfGroms program, onto the Wahu Surfer Groms Comps, into the Subway® Summer Surf Series, followed by the Australian Boardriders Battle.
Event 7 takes place on the Gold Coast from 3 – 4 January 2015.
