MOFFAT Beach's Reef Heazlewood scored 14.5 out of 20 in his heat yesterday at Coolum to secure a place in today's blue-riband under-15 final at the Wahu Surfer Groms Comp.

He will be joined in the decider by Sunshine Beach's Aaron Kelly, Caloundra's Kane Landsberg and Castaways Beach's Connor Lyons.

Grommets from throughout Queensland converged on Coolum Beach yesterday, making the best of messy one-metre waves.

The aims of the competition are to promote surfing and enjoyment of life on the beach.

There are divisions for under-15 boys and girls, under-13s, under-11s, under-9s and under-7s.

The respective winners of the under-13 boys and girls' divisions from each event will be invited to an all-expenses-paid three-day Wahu Surf Camp at the Hurley Surfing Australia High Performance Centre.

Spectators are encouraged to get down to Coolum Beach to witness the depth of the Sunshine Coast's talent pool and meet some of Queensland's next crop of surfing superstars.

Competitors and spectators can call the Surfing Queensland Event Hotline, 3030 6388, after 6.30am daily for event location and start time.
