Over the past 12 months Rip Curl has been searching the planet for the ultimate grommets. From May 16 - 19th 2019 the top junior surfers from around the globe will battle it out in Costa Rica for the title of International #GromSearch Champion. Who will be crowned this year?
Rip Curl ran the first ever GromSearch event in 1999 to provide a fun competitive event for 16-and-under junior surfers, and since then it has developed into a worldwide series that culminated at the International Final. This Final is held at a different location each year, with a focus on nurturing the development of the next generation of elite surfers.
