We conquered Cali, passed through Puerto Rico, hit up Hawaii, and crushed the East Coast. Now, the 2006 Rip Curl GromSearch proudly presented by Unbound Energy National Finals are ready to ignite this Saturday, November 4 at Salt Creek.
After the 8 regional summer stops, we invited the top 3 finishers from each division of each event to throw down for the National Final crown. Nearly every event sold out, and all the heavy hitters came out to rep their soil.
And why wouldn’t they? This year’s National Final will offer enough prizes to catch Captain Jack Sparrow’s eye, as well as some hefty, wallet-padding prize money for those who bring their A-game. If that still doesn’t motivate these 16 and Under mini wave-killers, Rip Curl is sending the winners of the Boys and Girls 16/under divisions on an all-expenses paid trip to Bells Beach, Australia to compete in the International Rip Curl GromSearch Finals, which will be held smack dab in the middle of the Rip Curl Pro WCT!
With a solid shoulder-to-head high combo swell predicted to grace the cliffs of Creek, it looks as though the groms will have the proper platform to get busy. The event looks to get underway by 7:30 am with Boys 16/Under hitting the water first.
