Bronson Meidi And Ketut Tia Win 2019 Rip Curl GromSearch
Hundreds of ripping young surfers from Bali, Java, Malaysia, Australia, America and other countries descended on Medewi Beach, Bali, last weekend, 19-20 October, to compete in the 16th annual Rip Curl GromSearch. Competing in an exciting, safe and friendly competitive environment, the best Indonesia surfers put their skills to the test against some red hot travelling competitors in all divisions, including Under 16’s, Under 14’s and under 12’s, with the addition of the Super Groms division (under 10 years old).
The rocky beach of Medewi offered competitors the perfect canvas to show their best skills with consistent 3 to 4 foot high long waves. The famous Medewi Beach is visited by both local and foreign surfers. This beach is one of the best surf spots in Bali because it has two surfing spots, fat waves, long swells and left handers.
“Final day went good, a true success! The waves were really consistent. It was perfect to give the chance to boys and girls under 16 to grab their tickets for the international final”, said Dedi Gun as the Rip Curl Team rider and also the MC for this event.
Many of the most adorable surfing moments of the weekend came from the under 10’s division with some of them having pushed by their dads on Medewi’s lefts. Rip Curl’s grom Lidia Kato won the 1st place in her category and was so happy to represent the Rip Curl team. She was followed by Kaila Tani Martin (11,00), Anissa Rei Martin (5,37) and Hanasuri Jabrik (4,03). In the under 10’s for the boys, Made Nesa scored 14,50 and won the 1st place againts other super grommets Leo Matchett (7,67), Kade Martin (7,27) and Platon (6,04).
