With a new generation of kids learning to surf, the transition from a soft board to a fibreglass surfboard can be tricky. It’s very important to select the right board to facilitate the grommet’s progression to the next stage. I have designed this board to look like a regular board, however it has a lot more volume around the outline for extra stability, without going too long in length. I like to make my Grom boards a little flatter than your contemporary rocker, easier to paddle. I like to keep the bottom simple with a shallow concave into a blended vee. I mostly make rounded square or round tails - preferring to avoid sharp/jagged edges for the Grom.
