Rip Curl GromSearch National Final to Webcast Live November 17



Costa Mesa, CA (November 9, 2012): The field has been narrowed and the stage has been set for the nationʼs best groms to do battle at the world famous Upper Trestles in San Clemente, CA on Saturday, November 17th for the Rip Curl GromSearch National Finals presented by H2O Overdrive. The location is not only ideal in terms of quality and conditions, but historic as well, with Rip Curlʼs US roots planted deeply in San Clemente as the location of the original Rip Curl USA headquarters. The world can witness the Rip Curl GromSearch National Final presented by H2O Overdrive on our live webcast at ripcurl.com/gromsearch.

This year, every finalist from the four regional events were awarded an invite to the National Final, increasing the invitees from 32 to 64 and making for an even more exciting and cutthroat day of action. The competitors are sure to bring their A-game to shred their way to Cash Prizes and international fame. The 16/Under National Final male and female champions will claim the coveted Golden Ticket to Bells Beach, Australia to compete in the Rip Curl GromSearch International Final held in the spring of 2013 in conjunction with the Rip Curl Pro Bells Beach.

Last yearʼs 16/Under National Final winners, Cam Richards and Tatiana Weston- Webb, will be defending their crown, while standouts like Taylor Clark, Kanoa Igarashi, and Kulia Doherty will be making their own run for the top spot. With a wave-saturated locale like Upper Trestles locked in, the line-up is certain to be on fire with some new-school flair.
