The first day of the Quiksilver King of the Groms South East Asia is scheduled to get this tomorrow morning, Friday the 9th of July, at Half Way on Kuta Beach with qualifying heats slated to paddle out at just after 7 am.
The three day’s of competition will determine who will be crowned the King of the Groms and win the coveted all-expense-paid trip to Hossegor Beach in France to compete against the other King of the Grom winners from 18 other countries in the King of the Groms International Final that will take place later this year during the Quiksilver Pro France from September 25 to October 5.
Last year saw almost 100 frothing Under 16 year old surfers from as far away as the Philippines and Thailand joining grommets from all over Indonesia to compete for the King of the Groms crown.
There will also be a “push in” contest for micro grommets, giving them a chance to compete with the assistance of their fathers or mothers and making it a fun event involving the whole family.
So make sure get down to Halfway Kuta Beach to see the hottest groms in Indonesia and South East Asia competing for the King of the Groms 2010 title, as well as enjoy a clean and beautiful beach courtesy of the Quiksilver and Coca-Cola Amatil Indonesia beach cleaning crew.
The Harris Resort on Jalan Pantai Kuta will host the awards presentation on Sunday evening July 11 starting at 6:00 pm.
