ASB MAGAZINE: Following a record haul of six wins and three runner-ups finishes in 2018, Rip Curl were nominated for a whopping 16 Awards at the 2019 SBIA Awards. In their 50th celebratory year, Rip Curl took a new record home winning ten awards and five runner-up finishes. Rip Curl Chief Brand and Marketing Officer Neil Ridgway collected the coveted Men’s and Ladies Brand of the Year Awards alongside Sophie Marshall, Rip Curl’s Head of Women’s, and the two took the moment to make a special tribute to Rip Curl Founder’s Brian Singer and Doug “Claw” Warbrick for their massive contribution to the surf industry. In the last 50 years they not only built Rip Curl, but also helped steer the whole surf industry towards success.
