May 19, 2009: – - What blossomed over ten years ago has now mutated and evolved into one of the world’s freshest junior comp platforms: The Rip Curl GromSearch fuel by H20 Overdrive is locked and loaded for another epic summertime throwdown.
Just one month ago, 2008 GromSearch National Final Champ, Nat Young, came within tenths of a point from claiming the International Final Title at the Rip Curl Pro WCT @ Bells. 2009 promises to have the same carrots, including prize money for each regional comp, enough media exposure to rival the Hollywood paparazzi, and of course that all-expenses paid trip to Bells Beach for the Under 16 Male and Female Champs.
Registration is currently NOW OPEN online at ripcurl.com/gromsearch. With one month until the first event kicks into action at 9th Street, Huntington Beach, CA (June 13-14), slots will fill up fast. Additionally, the Shorebreak Hotel is offering a killer GromSearch discount for competitors who stay during the HB event. Located across the street from the event, go to shorebreakhotel.com for reservations- PROMO CODE: 0906RIPCUR
