Rip Curl GromSearch Stop #3 presented by Banzai Bowls Called ON for this Sunday, August 13 - New Smyrna Inlet, FL
Costa Mesa, CA (Aug. 10, 2017): After reviewing this weekend’s Surfline forecast we’ve decided that this Sunday, August 13th looks the best, for the 3rd stop of the 2017 Rip Curl GromSearch presented by Banzai Bowls at the New Smyrna Inlet, Florida. While Surfline predicts a small swell at 1-2 ft., there is a chance we could see some action from the tropics and a couple bigger sets later in the day. Nonetheless, the groms will be amped to showcase their talent and there will certainly be no shortage of high performance surfing. We’ll be having weather with a high of 90 degrees and some scattered thunderstorms, hopefully not affecting any of the action but giving our competitors some added flare to their surfing. Should be a great 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 Steamer Lane in Santa Cruz, CA on October 6th-7th. The National Champion of the 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 in the Spring of 2018.
Check below for full event schedule, as individual heat times will be posted to ripcurl.com/gromsearch by this Friday (8/11/17).
GromSearch could not be possible without the tremendous support of it’s amazing sponsors; Banzai Bowls, FlexFit, POSCA Pens, Hydro Flask, Dragon Alliance Eyewear, Stance, Leus Towels, Surfline, Surface Sun Systems, …Lost Surfboards, and Wahoo’s Fish Tacos.
