The Rip Curl GromSearch Series presented by SNICKERS  began its 2009/2010 season today in fun waves at Jan Juc. Shannon Mackie and Nik Hoskin have all travelled down for the event. Good luck fellahs .

UPDATE Sept 23
Victoria’s cold weather blew in on the Rip Curl GromSearch today with a strong cold front creating wind-swept difficult conditions .Jan Juc beach break delivered it’s very best yesterday and today it was close to its worst with the harsh south-westerlies and small swells making high scoring rides very difficult. In the U16's Shannon Mackie and Niki Hoskin are all still alive and looking good to make the finals.

UPDATE Sept 24
Shannon Mackie surfed great and made it into the 4th round before being eliminated. Niki Hoskin has kept it all on track and is into the semi-finals of the 16's. Go Nik !!

UPDATE Sept 25
Nik made the final of the U16's and finished in 4th place today in great waves with a new solid groundswell and clean offshore winds. Congrats Nik on a solid result mate
