Olly Bolton claims a runner up finish in the Rip Curl Grom Search even in Newcastle beach October 2018.

Olly narrowly missed taking the number one spot in the final minutes of the 25 minute final. Bolton showed what a polished professional surfer he is by dominating all his earlier rounds showcasing progressive and radical surfing.

Well done Olly on a great performance.

These events consist of the best u18 surfers in Australia and at times international competitors.
