Please tell us about yourself and where your from.

[My name is] Seth Moniz, I’m from Honolulu, Hawaii and I surf every day.

What does GromSearch mean to you?

GromSearch is the comp that gets the best groms around together to compete. It is super cool that Rip Curl brought this comp to my home break. I surf here every day with all my friends.

What are the three main factors in your life pushing you to be a better surfer right now?

Loving, Surfing, Fun. All my friends do it and I don’t think my life would be the same if I didn’t surf.

Words of wisdom for the Seth Moniz Fans out there:

I received a piece of advice when I was younger that I live by still: “Follow your dream and get it.”

What role has Kewalos played in the development of your surfing?

I think Kewalos is great training ground because of the consistent surf and the option to go right or left. The right has a sick air section and the left is just so rippable.

How does if feel to make the Rip Curl GromSearch National Final at the Rip Curl Pro Search in Puerto Rico?

It feels so good to win. I have done the GromSearch a few other times but never done that well. To make Nationals is killer and I can’t wait to go see all the other qualifiers from all over the US. It is crazy because I have never been to Puerto Rico and I have no idea what to expect, but I am fired up. I know it is a once in a lifetime experience, so I’m pretty excited.
