Rip Curl, alongside environmental partner, Surfrider Foundation - organized a successful beach cleanup event at Ventura Pier, bringing together community volunteers for a day of environmental stewardship.
The event saw an incredible turnout of enthusiastic participants who collectively collected 85 pounds of trash, 18 pounds of recyclables, and an astonishing 1,500 cigarette butts from the beautiful coastline.
Rip Curl & Surfrider Foundation’s commitment to sustainability and ocean conservation was on full display as dedicated volunteers scoured the Ventura Pier area, ensuring the protection of the local environment and the preservation of our pristine beaches.

"The response from the community was nothing short of incredible," said PJ Connell, Rip Curl's Director of Marketing. "The passion and determination of our volunteers was inspiring. This event is a testament to what can be achieved when we unite for a cleaner, healthier coastline."
Following the successful cleanup, Rip Curl hosted a celebration at its Ventura store, located at 227 S California St, Ventura, CA 93001, featuring free tacos and live music by the talented Jahmon Soul. This was a heartfelt gesture of appreciation to the hardworking volunteers who dedicated their time to make Ventura's beaches cleaner and more beautiful.
