Brad Ettinger Inks Deal With Rip Curl

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.
