Costa Mesa, CA (August 8, 2013): After 14 years, the Rip Curl GromSearch series wages on! This Sunday, August 11th, the 3rd stop of the 2013 Rip Curl GromSearch presented by Mophie is making its way back to New Smyrna Inlet, Florida. Surfline forecasts predict a small ESE trade windswell producing fun waves in the 2-3 foot range, mixed with light winds, and sunny skies, adding up to a great event for the East Coast groms.


The GromSearch holds major significance, as finalists will not only receive cash and prizes, but all four finalists from Boys 16 & under, Girls 16 & under, Boys 14 & under, and Boys 12 & under, will be awarded an invitation to compete in the RCGS National Final slated for Upper Trestles, California on October 26th. The National Boys and Girls 16 & under Champion, will then be awarded an all-expense paid trip to Bells Beach, Australia to compete in the International Final held in conjunction with the Rip Curl Pro Bells Beach 2014.


Check below for full event schedule. Individual heat times will not be posted until the morning of the event. For event registration, info, and updates, head to ripcurl.com/gromsearch. Stay tuned to Surfline.com and Surfingmagazine.com for all post-event coverage, video clips, blogs, and more.
