10th annual T&C Grom Contest gets set for June launch




T&C Grom Contest

Queen's Kuhio Beach Oahu
16 - 17 Oahu Hawaii


Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 9 May, 2007 : - - Honolulu, Ha -- Join T&C Surf at the 10th Annual Grom Contest on June 16 & 17 at Queen’s surf break in Waikiki for a weekend of competition and fun for the whole family.

In the ten years since its inception, the grom contest has been a hot spot for showing off future stars and innovators of the surfing world. It’s a stepping stone for many local youth looking to test the waters of a competitive surfing career. Just to name of few of Hawaii’s up and coming surfers like Coco Ho, Kekoa Cazimero, Ezekiel Lau and Lani Hunter, honed their skills at past T&C Surf grom events. 

The event gives keikis age 14 and younger the chance to have one of the South shores’ premier surf breaks all to themselves competiting as a longboarder, shortboarder or bodyboarder. This year competitors take to the waves in the shadow of legendary Duke Kahanamoku statue at Queen’s surf break at Kuhio Beach. In keeping with Duke’s spirit of aloha, the event’s focus is friendly competition and enjoying a day at the beach.
