Rip Curl GromSearch Series 2012
The Rip Curl GromSearch series started in Australia in 1999, giving surfers aged 16 and under the opportunity to showcase their talents in a fun, friendly but competitive environment.
Already underway in Indonesia for 11 consecutive years, the event has found some incredible talents from all over the country including Oney Anwar, Putra Hermawan, Jeren Kiring and many more..
Rip Curl is always on the Search for the youngest and freshest talents from around the world, recruiting the next generation of surfers from the remotest regions of the planet. This special Grommet event running throughout Indonesia's island archipelago is one way we can scout the next generation of upcoming surfers.
Every year, Rip Curl provides the under 16 division winners from the regions an all-expenses-paid trip to compete in the National Grand Finals held during the Rip Curl Surf N Music festival at Kuta Beach Bali.
The overall winner of the GromSearch National Finals will win a dream prize of being flown to Australia where they will compete against champions from all over the world in the International GromSearch Finals to be held during the Rip Curl Pro at Bells Beach, Australia 2012.
This event is also part of the Indonesian Surfing Championship (ISC) and provides an opportunity for "Grommets" to win valuable ISC points which will go toward deciding the end of year ISC junior Champion.
