Big east swell and difficult conditions for the groms today. In the Under 12's Jake Snellgrove was eliminated in the round of 48 and Rhys Tatum was knocked in the round of 24. Zac Wightman is still going well and is into the quarter finals. In the under 14's Sam Morgan and Tom Gordon were knocked in the round of 64 while Mikey Wright is doing well and is into the quarter finals.
In the Under 16's Shannon Mackie , Tommy Snellgrove and Angus Steeles were knocked in the round of 64 while Mitch Adam made it into the round of 32 . Nik Hoskin has had a great run and is into the quarter finals.

Mikey Wright has won the Under 14 Boys at the 2009 Rusty Gromfest !! His first wave scored a 10 just minutes into the final and the other groms were left to fight for 2nd, well done mate. Zac Wightman tamed the conditions to smash his way into the final of the Under 12 Boys and finished in 4th. Nik Hoskin had a fantastic event to make the final in the Under 16 Boys but in the radical conditions couldn't find a backup to finish in 4th.
