Rip Curl GromSearch National Championships Presented By Nintendo Set To Invade Salt Creek

The time has come to bring America’s best groms to one arena where they will battle it out for the prestigious title of ‘Rip Curl GromSearch National Champion’. It all shakes down on Saturday November 5th at Salt Creek, Dana Point, California. The 2005 GromSearch Tour saw blood, sweat and airs; however, those who survived guarantee this year’s National event will be an insane spectacle of junior surfing! The invasion of groms will be flooding in from all over the country including states like Puerto Rico, California, Hawaii, Florida, North Carolina, New Jersey and more.

Many things are at stake including babe status, tons of new gear, and most importantly the chance to win an a trip to Bells Beach, Australia to surf in the International GromSearch Finals during the Rip Curl Pro WCT in April 2006. That’s right, Rip Curl will be sending the Boys & Girls 16/U champions to Australia to take on the world’s best groms from countries such as Brazil, South Africa, New Zealand, Indonesia, England and more.

The GromSearch National Championships at Salt Creek will be a one-day event with over 90 competitors. Heavy hitters such as Kyle Ramey, Alex Smith, Granger Larson, the Heverly Bros, Bethany Hamilton, Alana Blanchard, Andrew Doheny and plenty more will all be fighting for Rip Curl’s prestigious GromSearch Title.

Directly following the event will be a special awards party at Stuft Pizza in Dana Point. On hand will be an awards presentation, a slideshow and a sneak peak at the GromSearch 2005 DVD…

Rip Curl especially wants to thank Sponsor/Media partners Nintendo, Monster Energy, FCS, Surf One, Sticky Bumps, and ADD Marketing.
