The Rip Curl Grom Search Invades Santa Monica

Rip Curl Grom Search 2001 Invades Santa Monica

On Tuesday, July 17 the Rip Curl Grom Search, hosted by ZJ’s Boarding House, invaded Santa Monica. The event was packed with stoked groms and 1 to 2 foot offshore peaks. Presenting sponsors Electric, Epitaph, Sticky Bumps, Surfing and Surfing Girl Magazine, were all in attendance to add to the vibe.Most of the groms ages 8 to 15 were beginners but there were a few contest veterans competing for tons of prizes and huge trophies. Everyone wins at the Rip Curl Grom Search as each kid received a goodie bag stuffed with prizes, surf twice or more, lunch from Wahoo’s and fun and games for the entire day.Rip Curl team riders Anthony Petruso, Chad Compton and Cory Arrimbide were their to hang with the kids, hand out Rip Curl prizes and offer some insightful words of wisdom. Cory mopped up the competition by taking first in both the under 15 and under 12 divisions!
