Rip Curl

Legendary surf company founded in 1969 in Torquay, Australia and famous for its surf apparel, especially wetsuits and the phenomenal FlashBomb series which are a must for our chilly waters. 

Ripcurl is the only major surf brand investing back into grassroots surfing in a meaningful way in the UK and we’re stoked to be continuing and growing our partnership with them, delivering two GromSearch events a year, giving almost 200 young rippers a chance to compete and go on to win a place in the GromSearch European Finals.  

The GromSeach competition started out in 1999 exclusively for youngsters under 16 and is held in various regions of the world, culminating with an international final.  It’s proven a real hotbed of talent over the years having uncovered future world champs Stephanie Gilmore (x7 world champ) and Gabriel Medina (x2 world champ) and many others.  

So, wear your Rip Curl boardies with pride, knowing they are doing good things for UK surfing.  If you want any Rip Curl gear, Surfing England members get 15% off at the Rip Curl Store Newquay
