Micro Groms celebrate their victories at a South Bay Boardriders Surf Series Contest.

The kickoff contest of the 2014/2015 South Bay Surf Series held by South Bay Boardriders has been postponed due to the "heavy rain, polluted runoff, high surf and high winds," according to a post on the group's website. The contest was scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 13 at 26th Street in Manhattan Beach.

"Safety is priority #1, and it has been decided to postpone the contest until the next available date from LA County Harbors and Beaches Dept.," says a post on the group's Facebook page.
