Rip Curl GromSearch Stop 4 touches down in South Australia
Adelaide SA/AUS ( Tuesday 31 October 2017 ): The 2017 Rip Curl GromSearch Series presented by Flight Centre and supported by SunBum will be heading to the Yorke Peninsula for the fourth round of the national series this weekend.
100 of the top 16 & Under surfers from around the country will converge on the Southern end of the Yorke Peninsula for the two day event.
The Australian Rip Curl GromSearch series allows surfers from around the country to compete against their contemporaries in a fun and engaging environment. Each result in the five-event series is awarded points that count towards a surfer’s GromSearch National rating, giving participants across the country the opportunity to compare their performances against their peers.
After the last event in Queensland, the top ranked surfers qualify for the Rip Curl GromSearch National Final (in their respective divisions), where they then compete for the chance to become the Australian GromSearch Champion.
The National Champion then represents Australia at the Rip Curl GromSearch International Final, held at a new location around the globe each year, against the best junior surfers in each participating country.
With parallel Rip Curl GromSearch Series in over 10 countries, it has become a crucial stepping-stone in the development of junior surfers. The list of previous GromSearch winners illustrates the prestigious history of the series, with World Surf League (WSL) competitors Gabriel Medina (Brazil), Tyler Wright (Australia), Owen Wright (Australia), Matt Wilkinson (Australia), Jordy Smith (South Africa), Kolohe Andino (USA) and Sally Fitz gibbons (Australia) among the list of former competitors and GromSearch International Final Champions.
Heat Draws and Schedules will be posted on www.surfingsouthaustralia.com.au and the Surfing South Australia Facebook page.
