FIFTEEN year old Phillip Island surfer
Lannia Fostin has been selected as one
of eight young surfers nationwide to be
participate in the Hurley Grom Journey.
She will travel to Casuarina Beach in North-
ern NSW to receive training at the Hurley Surfing
Australia High Performance Centre (HPC).
Lannia is the youngest grom selected and is
riding a fast upward wave, having only started
competition 12 months ago.
She said, “I am super stoked to have the oppor-
tunity to head up to the Hurley high performance
centre as it’s a great opportunity to be trained by
some amazing coaches and surfers.
“There have been ups and downs but I love
every moment of surfing so to be given this op-
portunity to travel, meet new surfers my age and
develop my surfing further is really exciting -
some warm water will be nice too!
“I know this experience will give me a boost to
push harder for the next level.”
She has already placed runner-up at this year’s
Victorian Junior Surfing Championships.
The Hurley Grom Challenge will kick off this
Friday, September 30 and finishes on October 2.
The Hurley Grom Challenge takes a group of
unsponsored young surfers (grommets or groms
for short) through an intensive training camp at
It’s an experience that has been created for
kids who show promise and potential but don’t
yet have mainstream support/sponsorship or
coaching – they’re seen as the next generation of
surfers on the cusp of breaking through.
The challenge is designed in consultation with
the Australian Institute of Sport and features state
of the art education facilities, a surf specific gym-
nasium, testing and treatment room, auditorium
and onsite accommodation.
Freedom: Lannia Fostin on the beach at Woolamai. The fifteen year old is riding a wave of
success at the moment and could be one of the next generation of local surfers to make it big
on the national, if not the international circuit.

AUSTRALIA’S current hand
cycle race and time trial
champion for class H3, Alex
Welsh, has been announced
as an ambassador for the 2016
Bass Coast Cycle Challenge,
to be held on November 12,
2016 in Inverloch and the
beautiful surrounding areas.
Welsh joins five-time rowing
world champion and triple Olympic
Gold medallist Drew Ginn and long-
standing ambassador former Aus-
tralian cyclist David McKenzie.
The local cyclist from Korum-
burra is excited to be a part of the
Bass Coast Cycle Challenge.
“I’m supporting the Bass Coast
Cycle challenge because I believe
cycling is one of the best ways for
people get fit, stay healthy and to
socialise with lots of different peo-
ple. I also think that the Bass Coast
region is one of the best places in the
word to ride a bike.
“I encourage people of all abili-
ties and disabilities to be part of the
Bass Coast Cycle Challenge. No
matter what course you choose to
ride, the views will be spectacular
and you will have a great day out on
your bike.” He added.
Welsh competes in the H3 clas-
sification on a handcycle.
He began competing in 2011 and
is currently the Australian road race
and time trial champion in his class.
Combining a busy training and
racing schedule with studying bach-
elor degree in education at Federa-
tion University as well as compet-
ing in some triathlons and athletics
events, Alex still manages to find
the time to ride around 200km per
week around the Bass Coast and
South Gippsland regions.
“My favourite parts of the Bass
Coast to ride would have to be coast
road between Cape Paterson to In-
verloch or the top of Mt Misery is
really nice too.”
He has some big goals that in-
clude competing for Australia at
the World Championships in 2017
in South Africa, becoming the most
successful athlete he can be and
to inspire others to work hard and
achieve their goals.
The road ahead: the hand cyclist’s view of the road ahead. Alex
Welsh, named an ambassador for the Bass Coast Cycle Challenge to
held in November, is out on the road training for many hours each
week and said, ”The Bass Coast region is one of the best places in
the word to ride a bike.”
