Got any groms in the house?

That’s surf-speak for kids, according to the folks at NLand Surf Park, which operates a 14-acre man-made surf lagoon east of Austin.

The park will launch a Saturday kids’ surf clinic, in conjunction with the Boneshaker Project, this weekend. The series, open to kids ages 8 to 13, continues through Oct. 28.

RELATED: At NLand Surf Park, catch a perfect wave every time.

Participants can enroll in up to four 3-hour Saturday clinics. Besides 30 minutes of dry land surf instruction and 50 minutes of coach-led surfing in the lagoon, the program will include activities, games and lunch.

Each weekend, the clinic will spotlight a local Austin athlete or fitness professional who will speak and demonstrate his or her skills. Expect experts in hula hooping, boxing, BMX and more.

RELATED Boneshaker works to condition kids for a lifetime of fitness. 

Surfers who participate more than one Saturday can progress from NLand’s beginner bay wave to the intermediate inside wave.

Cost is $150 for a single Saturday, $250 for two Saturdays, $375 for three Saturdays, and $500 for four Saturdays. To sign up go here. http://boneshaker.org/program/weekend-waveshakers/
