Taj Burrow rescued 12-year-old grommet Chloe Campbell, who got into trouble after her leg rope snapped in a 4m swell at Yallingup on Friday, during her under-14 heat in Taj’s Small Fries. Burrow noticed she was in distress and reacted quickly.
It comes as no surprise that Josh Kerr’s daughter was destined to surf well. At 9 Sierra Kerr is already a bonafide shredder. Here we see Sierra ripping laybacks and roundhouse carves like kids double her height and double her age. This quick clip is a testament to those surf genes, as she brushes up those Kerr-patented snaps and cutties earlier this year around the Mentawaii Islands.
The event Winners and series Champions of all four divisions were crowned in the third and final installment of the Billabong Grommet Attack Series 2016 held at Halfway Kuta Beach sunday afternoon, with a total of 96 grommets participating in the action packed season finale!

Rip Curl’s GromSearch #2 turned up the heat at Batu Karas, West Java last weekend as Indonesia’s hottest Under 16 year old surfers displayed exactly the kind of surfing that this contest series was created to inspire. High flying maneuvers were the order of the day at the “Malibu of Indonesia” highlighted by the hottest battle of the year when Ketut Agus, title defender from Gromsearch #1 at Lombok, dramatically lost his number one spot to Padma’s Raju Sena.
Rip Curl’s Gromsearch lived up to its name by not only searching for the best young surfers in Indonesia but also searching for the best waves for them to surf in. After a last minute decision to move the contest from Senggigi Beach all the way across the island to Kuta Lombok’s famed Seger Beach, the Senggigi Boardriders jumped into action with transport and support and coordinated with the West side boys to make it all happen. Sure enough, the predicted swell moved in and gave the competitors a perfect field of 3-4 foot rights with light winds and yet another great, fair GromSearch was underway.
