Rip Curl by Hansen's Grand Opening Goes Off


Nothing but good vibes and good times ensued for the grand opening party for the new Rip Curl by Hansen's store in Encinitas this past Wednesday, May 1. With the likes of 3x World Champ Tom Curren to play live music, legends like Taylor Knox, and the respective crews from Hansen's and Rip Curl in attendance, the night was a big success. Now open for over a month, Rip Curl by Hansen's is a new partnership retail store directly south of the existing iconic Hansen Surfboards. Over 100 people came out to celebrate over free tacos provided by Los Locos, beer provided by Saint Archer, and live music.
