Day-Two of Rip Curl GromSearch Sunshine Coast Continues at Coolum Beach

Sunshine Coast, Queensland, Sunday 16th December, 2012: The final leg of the 2012 Rip Curl GromSearch series presented by Telstra continued on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast today, with a persistent 1.5-2m rolling in at Coolum Beach.

The 16 & under Boys division opened proceedings, however, it was the 12 & under Girls and Boys divisions stealing the limelight on day-two of competition.

Kiara Merideth (Shell Harbour, NSW) and Alyssa Lock (Snapper Rocks, Qld) were among a host of competitors in the 12 & under Girls division to post big scores, with the young goofy-footers amassing a combined two-wave heat total of 6.50 (out of a possible 20)  and 11.00 (out of a possible 20) respectively.

Meanwhile, reigning Queensland grommet state champion Dextar Muskens (Coolangatta, Qld) posted the day’s top score in the 12 & under Boys division, putting together some huge manoeuvres to record an impressive combined two-wave heat total of 13.67 (out of a possible 20).

Running from December 15-18, this week’s culmination of the series also includes the Rip Curl GromSearch National Final, which will see previous event winners and ratings leaders in the blue ribbon 16 and under Girls and Boys divisions go head-to-head for the chance to compete at next year’s International GromSearch final, held in conjunction with the Association of Surfing Professionals (ASP) World Championship Tour Rip Curl Pro Bells Beach.

Competitors and spectators are encouraged to call the Surfing Queensland Event Hotline on Ph# (07) 3030 6388 after 6:30am each morning of competition for a confirmed start-time and event location.
