Rip Curl GromSearch Set For The South

(below copied from
"The third leg of the Rip Curl GromSearch will take place at St Clair Beach, Dunedin this weekend (4-5 October) with sixty of New Zealand’s best young surfers taking to the water. The event has not been held in the South Island since early 2006 and the young South Island surfers will relish the chance to take on the rest of New Zealand in their own waters. While surfers travelling down from the North Island make up the majority of the draw in the five divisions to be contested, it may well be the local surfers who have the upper hand surfing the often challenging St Clair Beach. Local knowledge of the St Clair waves will be invaluable but it may be the southern surfer’s ability to withstand the frigid waters that will give them the advantage." .

St Clair has been steadily filling up with new and old faces all week. Comp starts 8am Saturday morning with some good swell predicted looks like a great weekend. .. see you down there!
