There’s a stacked field of the best 16 & under competitors from across the country, all gunning for the National Title and prize money. The champions of the boys and girls 16/U divisions will receive an all-expense paid trip to compete in the RCGS International Final against the top 8 qualifiers from around the world, set to go on the Search at an undisclosed location in Spring 2019.
This is the first time GromSearch has stepped on the cobblestoned point breaks of Ventura and its looking to be a high-performance showcase from the best junior surfers in the world.
The RCGS National Final will be a one-day event with a two-day waiting period held November 17th or 18th. Stay tuned to Ripcurl.com for event news, and heat times.
