For those unfamiliar with the lingo, a grom is a young athlete doing extreme sports. In this case, they’re waxing down, popping up, and riding waves as they flock to Phuket for a day of surfing and sea awareness. The winner of this competition earns a spot in the Southeast Asian championships, held at a yet-to-be-disclosed site in Indonesia this October. Non-surfers will be treated to constant action, too, so there’s plenty of reason to visit. Go to asia.ripcurl.com for more details.
