Kyuss King is on a mission to cryogenically freeze his gromhood. He’s a rare breed in that he’s living out every young surfer’s dreams and he’s outspokenly grateful for the opportunity. In the lineup at Lowers he mentioned how lucky he is to get a few days to compete there with no crowd. So he does it with panache. He’s neon green! He’s purple! He refuses to cut the bleach blond mop that hits his shoulder blades. That’d be a death sentence. And when I make a comment empathizing with the pain of braces, he shrugs it off. “I was actually supposed to get them taken off a couple months ago. I don’t even need them anymore.” Dude loves the braces. Respect. And while he’s enjoying the life of a young traveling surfer, he hints at his future goals. “It’s every grom’s dream to be a world champion,” says King. @kyussking

Kyuss King surfed his way to the Finals day at the Rip Curl Grom Search Huntington Beach California.
In a close fought battle in the Quarter Finals Kyuss missed out by less than a point (0.1) from progressing through to the Semi Finals.
The past two days have been filled with nothing but surfing and stoke. The junior team arrived at the DHD grom house on Saturday afternoon and went straight out to surf the world famous super bank. Needless to say these future stars are pumped to be out in the line up mixing it up with Mick Fanning, Kelly Slater, Dane Reynolds, and countless other pros. They have been surfing four to five times a day, and when they are not surfing they have been skating around Cooly and of course destroying an insane amount of food.
“It’s been great to get these kids, who are from all over Australia, under one roof,” said junior team manager Andy Tuttle. “You know these kids are usually competing against one another and don’t really get to spend that much time together. They are already starting to feel the pressure to go out and win competitions. But the grom house has given them the chance to just relax and surf with their mates. It’s awesome to watch them do laps from Snapper to Greenmount. I mean not only are they ripping they are just having fun.”
Since today was a lay day for the Quiksilver Pro the junior team riders were able to spend the afternoon with DH and Mick Fanning. DH spoke to the team about equipment, board designs, and the team riders’ plans for this year and the future. Mick stopped by to hang out with our future stars and give them professional insight and advice.
“I could tell that the junior team riders and Mick really enjoyed their time together today. The kids really look up to him, and for Mick it gives him a break from the competitive atmosphere. All the kids are super talented and it’s great watching them surf, and drop in on the pros” DH said with a smile. “I bought a lot of lollies but it still wasn’t enough. Oh an apologies to all the residents on Eden Ave for the water balloons.”
DHD is very excited to announce the 1st annual DHD Grom House. With all that is happening on the Gold Coast right now in the lead up to the Quiksilver Pro, it is easy to focus on the pros. However, we feel the Quiky Pro is a great opportunity to take advantage of the event and shine a little light on our pros in the making.
The junior riders will be sharing a house in Rainbow Bay and will have VIP access to the competition. The groms’ days will be filled with free surfing, skating, and mentoring from pro team riders on contest preparation. Mick Fanning and DH will also be providing educational tips on nutrition, equipment, and training at the pro level.
It’s going to be an exciting event for us here at DHD and our Junior team. Unleashing 6 frothing groms in Cooly is sure to be an epic adventure and something these junior riders will never forget. Be sure to stay tuned to dhdsurf.com for blog updates, footage, and exclusive interviews with these pro riders in the making.
