The Grom House Phones Home

by DHD Surf

The past two days have been filled with nothing but surfing and stoke. The junior team arrived at the DHD grom house on Saturday afternoon and went straight out to surf the world famous super bank. Needless to say these future stars are pumped to be out in the line up mixing it up with Mick Fanning, Kelly Slater, Dane Reynolds, and countless other pros. They have been surfing four to five times a day, and when they are not surfing they have been skating around Cooly and of course destroying an insane amount of food.

“It’s been great to get these kids, who are from all over Australia, under one roof,” said junior team manager Andy Tuttle. “You know these kids are usually competing against one another and don’t really get to spend that much time together. They are already starting to feel the pressure to go out and win competitions. But the grom house has given them the chance to just relax and surf with their mates. It’s awesome to watch them do laps from Snapper to Greenmount. I mean not only are they ripping they are just having fun.”

Since today was a lay day for the Quiksilver Pro the junior team riders were able to spend the afternoon with DH and Mick Fanning.  DH spoke to the team about equipment, board designs, and the team riders’ plans for this year and the future. Mick stopped by to hang out with our future stars and give them professional insight and advice.

“I could tell that the junior team riders and Mick really enjoyed their time together today. The kids really look up to him, and for Mick it gives him a break from the competitive atmosphere. All the kids are super talented and it’s great watching them surf, and drop in on the pros” DH said with a smile. “I bought a lot of lollies but it still wasn’t enough. Oh an apologies to all the residents on Eden Ave for the water balloons.”
