Rip Curl continues to solidify its presence in Orange County with the recent addition of Brad Ettinger to the pro surf team. The 20 year-old, Huntington Beach local inked a deal last week that will have the young talent representing Rip Curl for the next two years.
“This is such a good fit for me, Ettinger stated about joining the Rip Curl family. “With the company moving up to Orange County and the opportunity to jump on some ‘Search’ trips, I couldn’t be more stoked to be a part of Rip Curl.
As the Curl prepares for a major relocation to Costa Mesa next week, they wasted no time picking up one of the O.C.’s brightest young prospects. Team Marketing and Promotions Manager, Dylan Slater, issued this statement: “I definitely see Ettinger coming into his own in the next couple years. He definitely is loaded with potential, and I think he will fit in perfectly with our program.
Brad is anticipating a busy 2005, as he plans to attack select WQS events, while still finding time to get in front of the camera on various photo expeditions.
