Seizing on the excellent snow conditions at Mt Buller Rip Curl is bringing its popular Gromsearch format to the mountain onSunday 3 September.
Skiers and boarders under 17 are invited to join the event and shred the mountain with good friends and a few well-known faces from the Rip Curl snow team exploring Mt Buller’s massive 300 hectares of terrain in a freestyle ‘expression session’ format.
Professional Rip Curl snowboarder Nate Johnstone explains, “The GromSearch Snow Sessions are
just awesome. We find a few good zones to hit and then unleash the groms and see what they come up with. It’s all about having fun, getting creative and seeing the talent in our group. There’s a bunch of prizes to spice things up and everyone has a sick day on the mountain”.
Legendary photographer Tony “Harro” Harrington will be rolling with the Gromsearch crew and shooting all the action at each stop around the mountain so each participant will go home with a professional shot to remember the day.
“I am basically a big grom myself,” Harro explains, “This is set to be such a fun day ripping around together and having fun. I love shooting great action and I know these kids will be getting creative and most importantly just having the best day – which makes for great photos.”
Organizers and Rip Curl team riders will keep an eye on the participants, offer advice and award prizes ‘on the spot’ for notable performances. Everyone who registers will receive a Rip Curl gift, plus a social media photo of their choice shot by Harro. Groms also have the chance to win more great prizes on the day and all skiers and boarders under 18 are welcome to join.
