A GROM = young person stoked on an extreme, typically individualized, sport like paddling, surfing, skateboarding, etc.
GROM FEST 2021 includes a week of FREE paddling demo sessions followed by a Friday Night Paddle Jam. Experienced groms, as well as those new to the sport, can attend any of the Demo Sessions to try out different boards, learn and practice skills, tricks, and maybe even new moves. After a Demo Session groms can sign-up for Friday Night's Paddle Jam where they'll have the chance to show off those nose-pops, 180's, 360's, prone speed, etc. Registration will be limited and only available after attending a Demo Session, please reach out with any questions. Our Paddle Jam will begin at 6pm on Friday. All equipment will be provided. Waves of 10 participants, grouped bay ages, will paddle a short triangle-shaped course however they choose (prone, seated, or standing) and get to WOW the judges & spectators with their individual style. Awards and pizza for GROMS will follow.
