Rip Curl is a company for, and about, the Crew on The Search. The products we make, the events we run, the riders we support and the people we reach globally are all part of the Search that Rip Curl is on. The Search is the driving force behind our progress and vision. When Crew are chasing uncharted reefs, untracked powder or unridden rails, we want to arm them with the best equipment they’ll need. No matter where your travels lead you, we'll have you covered.
Rip Curl will continue to stick by the grass roots that helped make us the market leader in surfing, but we'll also charge on in to the future and push riding to a new level
