2016 European #GromSearch STOP1 - Martinique
8 March 2016
Great start in Martinique (french caribbians) for the 2016 Rip Curl #GromSearch on February 27th and 28th.
It’s in Tartane on the beautiful Island of Martinique that the first stop of the Euro GromSearch 2016 took place. A group of motivated Groms invaded the small firshement village of Tartane Right by the Peninsula of « La Caravelle ». Finally they were offered the best surfing conditions at « La Petite Plage », a nature reserve with 3 feet and off-shore waves, hot sun and 27°water…
The local surf Groms highlighted the event with great results from Noé Bahuon (-12 years old), Maël Laborde, Hugo Bense and José-Antonio Martinez (under 14 years old) and also Alex Viguier who ended at the third place under 16 years old.
A great first expèrience for Rip Curl with this first event ever in Martinique which Olivier Martinez (Rip Curl GromSearch manager) qualifies as « Best GromSearch Ever ! »
Big thanks to our partners EQ Love, Smith, FCS, Citroën, The comittee from Guadeloupe, all the volunteers, the competitors and their parents, the Trinité City Hall, the Itacare surfshop, and the Medinina Surf Club.
