Rip Curl Gromsearch Stop #3: New Symrna Beach

All photos Patrick Ruddy.

The third stop of the 2015 Rip Curl Gromsearch series presented by Banzai Bowls is done and dusted, with four lucky victors walking, driving, and flying away from New Symrna Beach a coupla’ Benjamins richer. The event was a huge success, with a record 90 competitors showing up for battle. The peaky Florida beachbreak saw perfect grom-suited 1-3 ft. surf, with clean conditions and the looming thrill of passing thunderstorms (and the occasional shark sighting). In the end, nothing was going to get in the way of these kids and a good time, and as the day came to a close, the beach was abandoned with not a frown in sight.
