GromSearch Comes to the East Coast!
Stop #3 Called ON for Saturday, August 10 at New Smyrna Inlet, FL
(Costa Mesa, CA) The GromSearch Series is packing up and heading across country for the East Coast leg! The third stop of the series presented by Banzai Bowls will see the right coast’s best junior surfers hit the famed New Smyrna lineup starting on Saturday, August 10.
The competitors will face classic summer East Coast conditions with forecast partners, Surfline, calling for a 1-2ft ESE swell on Saturday, putting the surfers small wave techniques to the test. On a positive note, weather conditions are looking to help the best it can, with beautiful warm weather, pristine water, and offshore winds throughout the morning. Hopefully we can stay away from the thunderstorms and small sharks this year!
The events top four finishers from each division will be awarded an invitation to compete in the Rip Curl GromSearch National Final – the first junior contest ever held at the world famous BSR Surf Resort in October. The 16/U Boys and Girls National Champion will win an all-expense paid trip to compete in the International Final at a location to be determined along The Search.
