Rip Curl grom Search Event #2 Kewalos

Stop #2 of the Rip Curl Grom Search was held in 2-4 ft surf at Kewalos. The groms were frothing from a lingering South swell which made the contest ideal for the kids. North Shore’s Wyatt McHale was on fire from his first round heats which included a slob-air and an air combo which lifted the level of surfing for the event. The top four finishers in each division earn a spot in the RCGS NAtionals held at Trestles. The winners in the Boys and Girls 16/U divisions also were invited compete in the Rip Curl Grom Search International Final at an undisclosed exotic location.

Congrats to all and great job by Rip Curl for putting on such an amazing event for the groms.
