Rip Curl anounces 2011 Grom Search

Our friends over at Rip Curl are bringing their popular Grom Search series back for 2011.

I remember when I was growing up, the older guys would duct tape groms to poles, give them corndogs (rolling one in the sand while wet) while they were trying to change, and many other hilariously abusive pranks.

But nooooo. Now that everyone is too afraid to get sued, groms get their own world tour.

Im not bitter or anything, but groms these days have it pretty sweet. Between facebook, sexting, and now this, I can now see why old guys seem so bitter.
