Celebrating its 15th year in 2010, the Rusty Gromfest will be held from July 9th – 13th in Lennox Head, NSW Australia.
Considered the most prestigious surfing event in the world for the 16-years and under surf demographic, the Rusty Gromfest has long been regarded as the pioneer in competitive events for surfing’s youth market.
Open to 240 competitors, over three age divisions (under 16’s boys and girls, under 14’s boys and girls and under 12’s boys and girls) from around the world (in 2009, the event attracted competitors from ten international territories) the Rusty Gromfest not only provides a platform for surfing’s next generation of champions to get their first real taste of competitive surfing, but rather, provides an opportunity to secure potential sponsors, truly launching professional surfing careers.
Sanctioned by Surfing Australia the contest is a stepping stone to Pro Junior events, then following onto the World Qualifying Series (WQS) and ultimately securing a place on the World Championship Tour (WCT), offering surfing’s next generation a chance to stand out and get noticed.
