The Rip Curl GromSearch originally started in 1999 and has become one of the most prestigious amateur surfing series on the planet. In the USA it will typically host 350+ competitors over a 4-stop regional series, and is considered a benchmark accomplishment for amateur surfers working their way into professional surfing.
Rip Curl USA VP of Marketing, Dylan Slater had this to say – “We are thrilled to have SURFACE on board as our official sunscreen partner for the 2014 Rip Curl GromSearch. Their product is quality and innovative, which means the groms will be well protected all summer long. They share our vision of creating an elite and prestigious platform for the nation’s top talent, and we couldn’t be more stoked to have SURFACE as a partner.”
"When we launched Surface Sun Systems in 2012 one of our main initiatives was to align with premium events that truly put top priority on athletes and progressing the sport of surfing. The Rip Curl GromSearch has an incredible 15-year history with providing top amateur surf talent with an amazing platform to help them achieve their goals going into professional surfing. We could not be more excited to have the opportunity to be a part of the 2014 Rip Curl GromSearch." Said Surface Sun Systems CEO Guy Trotter.
