Surfing NSW is stoked to announce the Billabong Oz Grom Cup presented by Coopers Surf Australia is returning to Coffs Harbour in April 2023.

Celebrating its tenth year, the prestigious five-day event will kick off from the 15th – 19th April, and will cater to over 200 talented grommets.

Surfing NSW Head of Events, Competition and Pathways Tom Dickson said, “The Billabong Oz Grom Cup is a great pathway for junior athletes, with the event being ranked a 6 Star (6500 points) that go towards to State and National Rankings which makes this one of the marque events in the calendar.”

The contest is mobile to maximise opportunities for the best available surf in the Coffs Coast region. The prime location will be Park Beach, whilst North Wall, McCauley’s Beach, Sawtell, Gallows, and Diggers Beach are all backup locations.

Please call the event hotline (0458 247 212) after 6:45 am each day of the event for the confirmed location.
