2014 Rip Curl GromSearch Hawaii

The coconut wireless is buzzing with groms. After the second stop of the 2014 Rip Curl GromSearch, at Kewalo Basin on Oahu, the line is busy with talk of young Hawaiian champions. Talk of how the best from Kewalos will go on to the National Final at Trestles, and possibly the International Final at an undisclosed, world-class wave later this year. Talk of how from there, they’re likely to go on to world-class careers. If one thing is worthy of so much talk, it’s the future. No need to dial, these kids beat you to it. –Mike Misselwitz
