The word grom is shortened from the word grommet. Used mainly in surf culture, but is also used in the skateboarding community as well. A grom is young kid, usually under the age of 15, that likes to surf or skateboard. A grom refers to both genders male and female. Groms are known for going out either in the oceans surfing or streets skateboarding, but not just surfing or skating, but surfing and skating with all their hearts, with passion like any professional in the extreme sport world. . Groms are usually super chill and positive. They like to encourage their fellow surfer or skater friends. There is no room for negativity in the surfing, skating world. That’s not to say they aren’t competitive because after all that’s only human nature. Who wouldn’t want the chance to be sponsored by some really rad companies and travel the world doing what you love. So groms do have a competitive streak. Groms, kids that dig the extreme sport of surfing and skating. Having fun and living to catch the next big wave or skateboard down the ramp, doing tricks and just being an awesome kid.
That grom is a rad surfer.

1. The word grom short for grommet is a surf culture slang term that originated in California and is used most often to describe any young kid who's a surfer despite their level of skill.

2. Evolving from surf culture, the term grom is occasionally used to describe young skate boarders, skiers and snowboarders too, though used less often.
"I prefer morning surf sessions before all the little groms get out of school and crowd the line-up."

"If that grom drops in on me one more time, I'll teach that punk a lesson in respect that he'll never forget!"
