GromSearch | New Syrma Beach, FL

Costa Mesa, CA (Aug. 10, 2016): After reviewing this weekend’s forecasts we’ve decided that this Sunday, August 14th, the 3rd stop of the 2016 Rip Curl GromSearch presented by Banzai Bowls will return to the New Smyrna Inlet, Florida. While Surfline predicts minimal swell, these groms will be fired up for the 1-2 ft. surf on offer, and there will be plenty of ripping. With clear sunny skies and 90-degree temperatures predicted, it’s going to turn out to be a heater of a day.

As the tradition carries on, the four top finishers from each division; Boys 16/U, Girls 16/U, Boys 14/U, and Boys 12/U, will be awarded an invitation to compete in the RCGS National Final set to be held at Seaside Reef in Cardiff, CA on October 29th. The National Champion of Boys and Girls 16/Under will win an all-expense paid trip to compete in the RCGS International Final - location to be determined, as we will once again be going on the Search to a new location this year.

Check below for full event schedule, as individual heat times will be posted to ripcurl.com/gromsearch by this Friday.

GromSearch could not be possible without the tremendous support of it’s amazing sponsors; Banzai Bowls, FlexFit, Skullcandy, Clif Bar, Dragon Alliance Eyewear, Surfing Magazine, Surfline, Carver Skateboards, Surface Sun Systems, DHD Surfboards, and Wahoo’s Fish Tacos.
