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.
