The Grom Prix gave the little surf rats a taste of real fall surfing in New England this year. Unlike last year’s flawless conditions, this year was chilly, windblown and accompanied by a last minute location change. The event was relocated to Marshfield’s Rexhame Beach, much to the delight of some and not so much for others. The beautiful beach greeted 150 kids, their families and friends, judges and staff from Levitate and South Shore Surf Camp who put on the contest. We’d like to specifically thank the Town of Marshfield, South Shore Surf Camp, Quiksilver, Roxy, Sanuk and Dakine.
The winners all hauled home brand new Levitate surfboards. From Left to Right: Emily Appleton, Chase Bomeisler, Kate Cunning, Larkin Tanner. Full results below.

This humble mini man has enough stoke style and soul to be on the Levitate team one day. Cole Schiller, pig dogging his way to the Boys 7-11 Final.
