This year, Quiksilver’s King of the Groms contest is going to be 100% digital. Open to all under 16 surfers, groms have until 30th June to upload a 1minute 30second video of themselves showing off their best tricks.
From 1st – 31st July, the videos will be published on the Quiksilver site and the public will have the chance to vote for their favourite. It’s a chance for those who have entered to get all their friends and family to vote for them.
Quiksilver’s pro surf judging panel, which will include Kelly Slater, Travis Logie and Dane Reynolds, will then choose their top 15 finalists who will be invited to surf with the pros at the International Final during the Quiksilver Pro France (taking place 26th September – 8th October, Hossegor, France).
“I think the new format is brilliant! I wish we had this when I was a grom! Sending in video clips gives groms around the world a chance to properly show their talents and express themselves without the stress of hassling for waves and time limits that you get in heats. It should bring out the best in the kids.” Travis Logie
