Just to name of few of Hawaiis 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 Queens surf break at Kuhio Beach.
