Rip Curl Gromsearch surf contest kids east coast surfing

Costa Mesa, CA (Aug. 17, 2016): The East Coast GromSearch tour continues on as the fourth and final stop of the 2016 series presented by Banzai Bowls is set to run at the south side of Jennette’s Pier, Nags Head, North Carolina this Friday August 19th. With minimal but contestable waves in the 1-2 foot range forecasted by Surfline, groms will have to be ready to battle the conditions the ocean provides.

The final stop will be offering GromSearch competitors not only cash and prizes, the four finalists from each division; 16 & under boys, 16 & under girls, 14 & under boys, and 12 & under boys, will all be invited to compete in the National Final, set to be held in California this fall at Seaside Reef on October 29th, 2016. The National Champion of Boys and Girls 16 & under, will then be awarded an all-expense paid trip to compete in the International Final, which is going on The Search to an undisclosed location in 2017.

Please keep an eye on Ripcurl.com/gromsearch for all event updates, as we possibly will have to run the event over both Friday and Saturday to maximize the contestable conditions. Stay tuned to Surfline.com and Surfingmagazine.com for all post-event coverage, video clips, blogs, and more. Join us on Snapchat, @ripcurl_usa, to follow along with all the fun.

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.
