Rip Curl Beginnings

A garage on the The Great Ocean Road was the beginning of an epic journey for surfing friends Doug “Claw” Warbrick and Brian Singer. They started making surfboards there before shifting to the Old Torquay Bakery in Boston Road, lifting their production to 12 boards a week. It was the beginning of the Rip Curl empire that still has its roots in Torquay today. Read more about Torquay and surfing here.
