2017 Rip Curl Gromsearch


Join the best youth surfers from across America as they compete in the 2017 Rip Curl GromSearch presented by Banzai Bowls.

With four regional events, and one National Final, the 2017 RCGS is gearing up to be the best year yet!

The season starts off in Huntington Beach, California and will travel to Oahu, Hawaii, New Smyrna Beach, Florida, and Nags Head, North Carolina.

The top four finishers from each division at each region will then compete in the National Championship, set at our new location, Steamer Lane, California.

The National Championship will decide who will represent North America and compete against the world's best groms at the Rip Curl GromSearch International Final in the Spring of 2018.
