About Summertime Surf Grom Teams

Summertime’s professional coaching staff leads New Jersey’s best up-and-coming surfers to achieve their surfing potential.  Since 2008, the Grom Team program has provided the ultimate environment for rapid skills improvement under dedicated coaching.  Former Grom Team members have developed their fundamentals and fine-tuned their skills to become regional, state, and national surfing champions.  Some have gone on to become sponsored athletes, and others to become captains of collegiate surf teams.  Accolades aside, coaches are most proud of the hard work and resulting life lessons that grom team members take with them as they mature from stoked kids to responsible young watermen and waterwomen.

The Coaching Staff

Grom Team directors Mark Gilmartin & Shaun McGrath have over 25 years of surf coaching experience and worldwide surf travel expertise between them.  Together with Manasquan H.S.coach J.D. LaCarrubba and their assistant coaching staff, the Summertime coaching roster is made up of some of the area’s best surfers, many of whom were once team members themselves.

“It is an honor to work with your children, and you can expect a safe, professionally organized program that is, like our team members, in a continuous state of refinement.”Shaun McGrath, founder
