Victoria Vergara, an Icon of Women’s Longboarding, Joins the Rip Curl Team

Rip Curl is pleased to announce a new partnership with one of the most talented female surfers of her generation, longboarder Victoria Vergara.

Rip Curl is excited to welcome Victoria Vergara, a talented longboarder based in Hossegor, France, to the Rip Curl team.

Surfing since the age of twelve in New Caledonia and Réunion Island, Victoria’s affinity and aptitude for longboarding quickly become apparent and it wasn’t long before the surfing world took notice of her exceptional technical prowess and natural grace.

Vergara is also a competitor at heart, finishing in the top 10 worldwide in her first season on the World Surf League professional circuit. Today, she’s busy travelling the globe, from California to Japan and Hawaii, to participate in the Duct Tape Championships, events combining top-level surfing, art and music.

In addition to being an outstanding surfer, Victoria also cultivates a passion for fashion and design; equally at ease on a Fashion Week catwalk as on the nose of her longboard. Victoria Vergara navigates between both worlds, proving that nothing is impossible when you really want it.

“I am so happy and touched that the teams at Rip Curl have so much confidence in me. It is a privilege to work with the Ultimate Surf Company and share both women’s values and sporting values. This partnership combines my two passions, fashion and surfing. I can't wait for you to discover our forthcoming projects,” comments Victoria Vergara.

Since 1969, Rip Curl’s design teams have been focused on creating the best products for surfers worldwide so they can pursue their passion in the best possible conditions. In recent years, we have seen women’s surfing explode around the world. This new partnership with Victoria Vergara is an opportunity not only for Victoria to express her many talents, but to assist the brand in its initiatives to support women who adore waves and the ocean

“Victoria is a surfer who combines surfing, style and elegance, both on and off a board. It is this versatility at the crossroads of fashion and sport that guided us in reaching out to Victoria to join the brand. This is a new part of our strategic plan that we are proud to secure with this partnership. We are delighted to have her on our team. Welcome, Victoria!” says Mathieu Lefin, CEO of Rip Curl Europe.
