Rip Curl

Rip Curl
A hardcore Australian surfing company through and through, Rip Curl started life in 1967 as a surfboard manufacturer, but 3 years later founders Doug Warbrick and Brian Singer saw a gap in the burgeoning wetsuit market and didn't look back. Their mission was to make surfing in cold water a more pleasurable experience for their fellow surfers. And after nigh-on five decades of blazing a trail it's safe to say they’ve done that. The name ‘Rip Curl’ came from an off-the-cuff message scribbled by Doug Warbrick on an old single-fin. It read “Rip Curl Hot Dog.” Kinda meaningless, but kinda cool too! As well as making a rock-solid range of wetsuits, Rip Curl also produce a damn fine range of boots, gloves, hoods and vests. Feel free to call us on (01736) 757025 (7 days a week, 09:30-17:30) or email for any advice about our wide range of Rip Curl products.
