Getting Ready For Skullcandy Oz Grom Open

It’s that time of the year when Lennox Head prepares for the arrival of hundreds of groms and their families, each one hoping to take away a coveted Skullcandy trophy.

Junior surfers from all over the globe will once again venture to the northern NSW coastline in July to contest the 2017 Skullcandy Oz Grom Open presented by Vissla at Lennox Head.

The premier six-day event will kick off from July 7 – July 12th 2017 and crown champions across 12, 14 and 16 age divisions.

David Chegwyn from Skullcandy says, “Skullcandy is very pleased to sponsor the Skullcandy Oz Grom Open for the sixth year. We are extremely thankful and impressed that we have been able to work with Le-Ba Boardriders and the local community to promote and elevate junior surfing in the local area. The local areas and its local surfers are world class and the Skullcandy Oz Grom Open is an event we are really proud of.”

John Mossop from Vissla echoed similar sentiments. “2016 was the maiden year Vissla was involved with the Skullcandy Oz Grom Open and we felt privileged to be part of the prestigious event. The competition has long been regarded as one of the best junior events on the planet and it is a solid window of who tomorrow’s champions will be.”

In a similar vein to preceding years – where the event has attracted surfers from ten different countries – a full international field is again expected in 2017 with surfers coming from as far away as Europe, USA and Japan to make up a field of more than 170 surfers.

All event divisions will be broadcast live on

Entries into the event will open at 5 pm, Thursday 15th May on
