|ASB MAGAZINE: Rip Curl announced the renewed three-year agreements with top American up-and-coming surfers; Erin Brooks, Alyssa Spencer and Crosby Colapinto. The rising stars of the surfing world, the next World Champions. It has always been a fundamental focus at Rip Curl to support the next generation on their journey through the junior ranks as they each edge closer towards their dreams.
“Pro surfing and Searching for waves go hand in hand at Rip Curl. We have always known how important it is to recruit the next generation of surfers and help them on the career path they choose. That is the core,” said Neil Ridgway, Chief Brand and Marketing Officer at Rip Curl.
“To have such depth in the USA right now and to watch them grow and be happy surfing so hard brings a lot of good vibes to our brand and all our Crew around the world. Who knows? We might have the next Tom Curren, Mick Fanning, Gabe Medina, Bethany Hamilton or Tyler Wright on our hands. They can only try, and we can only do our best to make sure they have fun doing it. I’d like to thank their parents and families for giving them the freedom to go for it.”
For Brooks, Spencer and Colapinto, their talent, ambition and humble attitudes has meant locking in for another three years was a no brainer. Rip Curl is thrilled to continue to support with the trio as they strive for their spot on the WSL World Tour.
Rip Curl are looking forward to seeing these three surfers continue to charge and one day come to the Rip Curl Pro at Bells Beach where they will always find a home.
