The origin of Rip Curl.
The brand started in 1969 as a vision, or Search, of two surfers; Doug Warbrick and Brian Singer in Torquay, Victoria, Australia. The name was taken from a vee-bottom surfboard that co-founder Warbrick bought in 1968, upon which he'd written "Rip Curl Hot Dog" and decided to keep the name because ripping was groovy. At the beginning, they only manufacture surfboards and a year after they began the production of wetsuits, with an emphasis on transforming diving technology into a wetsuit suitable for surfing. They have endured as a private company and their vision of the Search evolved into a way of life for surfers and board sports enthusiasts worldwide.
