Rip Curl is forever searching for the best way to look after the most important surfers in the world… the grommets. The Rip Curl GromSearch is a global series of surfing events in which surfers under 17 years of age can have a go at competing on their local beach. The overall winner of the ‘under 17’ division of each national series will go to the World Final in Australia held in April 2008 during the Rip Curl Pro WCT event in Bells Beach.
The Rip Curl GromSearch Indonesia is organized for the 4th time and is part of the National ISC Junior Series, so in addition to the chance of winning a free trip to Australia, the contestants also get ISC Junior Series points. Are you ready for the chance to win an all expenses paid trip to Australia and increase your chances on becoming Indonesia’s first ISC Junior Series Champion? Here’s what you need to know!
Rip Curl GromSearches are open to all male and female surfers under the age of 17 (eligible competitors must be 16 until 31.12.2007). There are two separate divisions: under 15 and under 17. The under 15 division is only for local surfers (i.e. for a competition in Java only surfers from Java can enter) but the under 17 division is open for all. Best of all, the GromSearch events are free of charge so sign up today!
In addition to great prizes, the winners of each GromSearch event get a wild card to the National GromSearch Training Camp which will be held at the Rip Curl School of Surf in Bali a week before the National Final.
To be in with a chance to take part in these amazing events and win a free trip to Australia, simply sign up at your nearest Rip Curl store or with your local surf club at least 3 days before the event. Entries must include proof of age (copy of passport or birth certificate). Don’t miss this chance to participate in a competition which could be your ticket to Australia! Sign up today!
