9 August, 2020 – Kuta, Bali: Weekend Three of the five scheduled Tipi Jabrik’s Grom Patrol and Comps saw heaps of impressive surfing performances going down at both Legian and Kuta Beaches by Bali’s best groms, and the weekend was capped off by the announcement of this week’s Comp winners at Kosta Hostel Berawa, three of which took their third consecutive division wins! Big congratulations to Jasper Glossop in the Under 10 Boys, Georgie May in the Under 14 Girls, and Ketut Tia in the Under 17 Girls.
New winners this week were Phillip Duke in the Under 14 Boys and Made Joi in the Under 17 Boys, who earned spots in the grand final along with runner-ups Sinar Tandjung in the Under 10 Boys, Jasmine Studer in the Under 14 Girls, and Kayla Martin in the Under 17 Girls.
Friday’s Grom Patrol Camp and Comp was held at Legian Beach again, as the sand banks there continued to offer up prime 2-3 foot waves for the 25 groms and kept the Grom Patrol filmers super busy capturing all the action. On Saturday the group moved down to Kuta Beach, where perfect lefts and rights gave the groms ample opportunities to surf on both their forehands and backhands on the playful 2 foot waves.
For the groms that joined the Camp, their late afternoons and early evenings were spent on performance reviews and analysis with the Bali Elite Surf Coaching team at Kosta Hostel water safety training with Bali’s Lifeguards (Balawista), breath training and water games in the Kosta pool, then eating dinner and hanging out until bedtime. Each morning after breakfast it was back to the beach for another day of surfing and training, and having fun with their friends as only groms can do. And next week, many of them are already signed up to do it all over again!
