Founded in 1969 by Brian Singer and Doug “Claw” Warbrick, Rip Curl is one of the world’s most recognized and respected brands. It has been at the forefront of the surf and snow scenes since its creation. The first company to sponsor a professional surfing event, the 1973 Rip Curl Pro at Bells Beach, and we’re committed to continue the tradition of supporting and showcasing the best surfing to fans across the globe.
Rip Curl remains a company built by surfers for surfers, and we’ve been market leaders in surfing for over 50 years. 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 into the future and push riding to a new level. We know what we are doing and we will be around for a long time.
