The DRIVER 2.0 Grom is exactly as the name implies. Our flagship Pro-formance shortboard, proportionately down sized, for little shredders on the rise. Retaining all the performance characteristics of the full size DRIVER 2.0, but reduced to sizes 5’5” and under.
We’ve worked closely with a crew of young international surfers, to fine tune this fabulous little rip stick. Starting with years of development, working with Eli Hanniman and Winter Vincent, then onto the likes Erin Brooks, Cannon Carr, Sawyer Linblad, Rex Hennings, AllDayDylan, Rajo Barrel, Kai and Hans Odriozola, Luke and Alana Lopez, Kaia Howard, Rico Haybittle and more.
Not to say that the DRIVER2.0 Grom is only for top level shred heads. Groms wanna rip! …and this is the stick!
We offer two separate size scales:
- “GromPro” dims: Based closely off sizing and volume of high level, accomplished, competitive kids, whose ability equates minimalist foam to body weight ratio, allowing them to push their surfing to elite levels.
- “Developing” dims: For kids who aren’t completely ripping, but ride are riding performance boards and developing the skills to grow into solid surfers. These boards have more generous width, thickness and overall volume. They feature more foam up front, for easier paddling, forgiveness in ma- neuvers and generating speed. Working with my son, River, we sneakily and smoothly blend the deck and rail volume to “hide” the extra foam and retain the sensitivity and respon- siveness of narrower, thinner boards
