This last destination in Lacanau, on the occasion of the last stage of the Rip Curl Gromsearch, rounded up 120 athletes from all over France. During this weekend, the waves were at the rendezvous which allowed our athletes to perform an unprecedented show!
For the first place among cadets (boys less than 16yo) there is Nicolas Paulet with a score of 13.84, followed closely by Kyllian Guerin, previous winner of Rip Curl Gromsearch in Anglet two weeks earlier with a score of 13, 66. We had a real good battle between these two athletes. Then, Neil Aboufiras took the third place on the podium with a score of 10.47 and finally Luan Nogues in fourth place with a score of 8.5. What a show!
Among girls less than 16yo, it is with happiness that Nahia Milhau wins and takes the first place with a score of 11.96 before Uxue Dominguez who received the score of 11.43! The latter was in third place in Anglet but was able to stand out in Lacanau to reach the second step of the podium, will she be the first next year? Keep training. In third place, Hina Conradi, came from Vendée for the event with a score of 11.1 and finally in fourth place; Flore Baracchini with a score of 6.57, her first time ever on the podium of the Rip Curl Gromsearch U16 Ondine! Congratulations to you all!

No information is yet delivered on this subject. A second final will also be held at the end of 2019 to allow the first 5 athletes to compete and win a place for the international final as well so, stay tuned!
