About Summertime Surf Grom Teams

Summertime Surf’s professional coaching staff leads NJ’s premier advanced surf coaching program for New Jersey’s best up-and-coming surfers.  Since 2008, 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, we coaches are most proud of the hard work and resulting life lessons that grom team members take with them as they transition from being stoked kids to responsible young watermen and waterwomen.

  • Boys & Girls Teams set apart in Summer season / co-ed during Fall-Winter-Spring

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 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
