The Search for the top 16 and under surfers around the nation continues

Costa Mesa, CA (July 11, 2013): The Search for the top 16 and under surfers around the nation continues as the Rip Curl GromSearch presented by Mophie heads to Kewalo Basin on the island of Oahu this Sunday, July 14th for the second stop of the series.

Our partners at Surfline have forecasted fun 1-3 foot waves as a new SW swell fills in, along with a minimal SSE swell. Eighty-four degree weather with light trade winds will ensure a beautiful day. With cash prizes on the line for all divisions, amazing prizes from the sponsors, including HIC, the Official Retail Partner of the Rip Curl GromSearch Hawaii, competitors will also be battling for slots at the Rip Curl GromSearch National Final to be held at Upper Trestles this November 17. The top four finalists from all divisions get the coveted invite.

The stakes are high for Hawaii's top talent from the Aloha State, as groms will be fired up to take the victory. For info, updated event details, and to register, go to
