With the surfing world’s eyes fixed on Huntington Beach, California for the US Open of Surfing, the crew at Rip Curl took the opportunity to throw a full blown bash at the company’s new store in downtown HB. Marquee surfers and World Champions Mick Fanning, Stephanie Gilmore, and Alana Blanchard were on hand, as were slews of industry tycoons, surf fans, and party goers. Here are just a few shots of the new store and the scene from the party.
