“We feel honored to be returning to Lakey Peak for our series #5 and our National finals”, says Rip Curl Marketing Manager SEA James Hendy, “Lakey Peak holds a special place in our hearts and the waves are so perfect that it allows the Gromsearch to live up to its name as an inspiration to Indonesia’s best young surfers. The surfing is always insane”.

In cooperation with the Lakey Peak Boardriders Club, this upcoming finale to the Gromsearch series will be held at yet another ideal venue for both competitors and spectators to witness the hottest under 16 surfing in Indonesia.

Real surf, real contests, real winners and a fantastic grand prize that could lead to international recognition and help launch an international professional surfing career.

Here’s how it works: The winners of each regional competition are invited to the Indonesian National Final.
