Attention Juniors – Quiksilver King of the Groms Underway

Calling all groms; this is your chance to be crowned King. The first round of Quiksilver’s 2015 King of the Groms competition is underway, and if you’re aged between 13 and 18, you could win US$20 000 and make name.

Bust out your craziest tricks and you could be King. Ntando Msibi #KingoftheCombo

King of the Groms is a global competition open to any surfer who falls within the specified age group (13 – 18 years) and comprises three rounds; two online and the final at an undisclosed location that will see the Top 10 online entries battle it out in an exciting competitive format that will be broadcast live.

Round 1 kicked-off on 24 April and will close on 17 June. It’s the Instagram round, and to get entered all you need to do is upload a 15 second video clip of yourself doing your thing to Instagram and tag it with the relevant hashtags. There are three categories; #KingoftheAir judged by Craig Anderson, #KingoftheRail judged by Dane Reynolds, and #KingoftheCombo judged by Jeremy Flores. Depending on which of the three you’re aiming for in the clip you upload, you’ll then tag it with one of those three hashtags as well as @quiksilver and #kingofthegroms.

Then it will be up to you to ensure your entry gets noticed by sharing it via social media. Rack-up the likes and comments and make your entry stand out from the pack. Make sure it’s killer, because Craig, Dane and Jeremy are watching.

Once Round 1 concludes, 30 surfers will then be chosen to take part in Round 2 – the Video Challenge from 23 June – 15 September. First you’ll have to make it that far, but if you do you will then need to get shooting so you have enough footage for a 1 – 2 minute clip. Make it through Round 2 and you’ve got a 1 in 10 chance of being crowned King. All the finalists will be winners though, because they’ll be contesting the Super Final at a yet to be named location around the world. You’ll be leaving on a jet plane and possibly coming back first class, with a crown on your head and US$20 000 in your bank account.
