Rip Curl’s “Tip To Tip” Site Launch


Rip Curl Unveils “Tip 2 Tip” Search Website With Launch Today

Rip Curl went live with its “Tip 2 Tip” website today, finally unveiling the details behind the two-month documentation of its six-month Search project through Indonesia.

Rip Curl will unravel a new chapter, a new trip and a new cast of Searchers every week from August 16 to October 6, posting a unique video episode every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, along with photo galleries and a diary of stories from each voyage.

This first chapter, aptly titled “Sonic Youth”, features Rip Curl young guns Dillon Perillo, Gabriel Medina, Kao Smith, Davey Cathels and Indonesia’s own Garut Widiarta.

The boys set out from Bali and witnessed a little bit of everything over their two-week trip. Good waves, no waves, good weather, huge storms, pool parties, reef cuts, everything…

“I was psyched to be involved with the first trip – this project is an amazing idea,” says Garut. “It was a crazy trip too – we did a bit of everything, but it got Tip 2 Tip started and we definitely got some good waves.”

“It was great to get on the Rip Curl boat and set out from Bali for the launch trip,” adds Dillon. “We scored some fun waves, but had plenty of good times during the down times too – fishing, sipping Bintangs and watching Garut eat the reef were some of the highlights!”
