Owing to a shark attack at Ballina yesterday, the Skullcandy Oz Grom Open organisers will conduct aerial and water surveillance prior to today’s event to ensure the safety of all competitors.

The six-day event will see over 300 competitors duke it out in under-12, under-14 and under-16 divisions as well as a prestigious World Surf League (WSL) Junior Qualifying Series (JQS) event.

‘We will have aerial and water craft surveillance, which will patrol the Ballina Shire coastline’, said Skullcandy Oz Grom Comp Event Organiser Cameron

‘Based off the results of this surveillance, council, police and the event committee will convene at 6.45am and make the safest call on whether the event will run on time.’
