Tomorrow, the Natadola beach will come alive with this year’s Rip Curl Micro Grommet Series.

Fiji Surfing head coach Ian Portingale said over 50 kids would be surfing in the Under-10, U12 and U14 boys and girls division.

“This is a great way to try a surfing contest as everyone’s a winner in safe surf conditions and a supportive environ­ment,” Portingale said.

“The under-10’s can have parent assistance to help them catch waves and everyone’s safe. Come and see the future tal­ent of surfing in Fiji.

“As a new Olympic sport we are looking for new talent eve­rywhere so it could be your son or daughter.”

Portingale said as well as the surfing contest there’s a free family day.

“The Fiji National Sports Commission will conduct beach volleyball and beach soccer.

“Vatuvara Eco Resort will conduct environmental activi­ties while Inia Nakalevu will be doing introductory surfing lessons and Wailoaloa Boardriders is putting on a sausage sizzle.

So there are heaps to do for everyone on the beach at Nat­adola. Bring the family and enjoy this amazing family day. The surfing starts at 10am whilst the free family day kicks-off at 11am.”

Portingale said they are grateful to their sponsors Rip Curl, Jacks, Hot Bread Kitchen, McDonald’s, Fiji National Sports Commission, Vatuvara Eco Resort and Wailoaloa Boardrid­ers
