3rd Annual Grom Magazine Surf Contest

This past weekend the town of Lahaina, Maui was celebrating it's Hawaiian heritage with a series of cultural events put on by the Lahaina Restoration Foundation. This unique festival featured a variety of demonstrations from string lei to carving canoes as well as a keiki fishing tournament and the 3rd Annual Grom Magazine Surf Contest. 

Groms ages five to sixteen started arriving to the Lahaina Harbor at the break of dawn. Mother 
nature was kind enough to provide a one to two foot swell in what has been a waves starved
month on the island of Maui. With very light trades, the conditions stayed glassy for the majorityof the event and the waves offered contestable conditions throughout the day.

Standouts this year, reigned from the Westside of Maui, with Lahaina local Summer Macedo 
winning girl 10 to 12 and 13 to 16 divisions and taking home $300 in prize money. Also from
Lahaina, Dylan Lehman put on quiet a show and had the dough to prove it at the end of the day with $325 in prize money. Dylan won the boys 13 to 14 division, earned a 2nd place finish in the 15 to 16 division as well as the air shown in which he pulled a super impressive inverted air
reverse and netted himself a ticket to California for Nationals in June, provided by Hurley. Also
ripping his way to the finals and surfing up a division was 11 year old West side local Ty Ty
Kirby, who fought hard for his solid finish.
