The Rip Curl GromSearch Series



The Rip Curl GromSearch series is blowing up around the world and we're forever searching for the best way to look after the most important surfers... the grommets!


The GromSearch series is all about giving male and female surfers the chance to surf with their friends in a fun environment. At the same time it gives grommets great competitive experience and allows selected winners to compete for a trip to the Rip Curl Pro Surf & Music Festival at Bells Beach, Australia in April next year.

GromSearch has seen some awesome talent, including past winners Stephanie Gilmore, Ben Dunn, Mason Ho, Matt Wilkinson, Jessi Miley-Dyer and Alana Blanchard.

Do it up at your local beach this GromSearch year!
