Rip Curl is kicking off the 14th annual GromSearch series at Areguling, Lombok this weekend! These fun-filled youth surfing events are always a blast, but also a great way to help bring up the next generation of surfers. Dozens of GromSearch graduates have become elite athletes in the surfing industry such as Steph Gilmore, Tyler Wright, Alana Blanchard, Kolohe Andino, Jordy Smith, and Gabriel Medina.
The first 2-day event of the 2017 series will be held at Lombok's famous righthand point break, Are Guling, on 22-23 April, and features boys and girls divisions in the 16 and under, 14 and under, and 12 and under age groups.
Good luck groms!!
