Grom Updates 

The grom search for 1-DA Shapes ends after 18 months  

Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 2 September, 2014 - It’s taken over 18 months for designer/shaper, Gavin Upson, to find a 1-DA grom who displays specific characteristics he believes are mandatory in making a world champion. And today, it's announced Gav has finally found one.

Josh, who is also a member of the Currumbin Alley Boardriders, says “First of all, I just want to say thanks to Gav for sponsoring me. The boards go amazing, they’re really good. I’m really excited about the future with 1-DA!”

Gav explains "Josh shows some great qualities that I've been searching for for a while now. All the kids are doing aerials these days but Josh has certain characteristics I’ve seen over the last 20+ years, and still see today, in many world champions. I look forward to working closely with Josh to help him realise his surfing dreams."
