When in Rome, do as the Romans do. If it’s a lay-day and the event isn’t running you can still catch a wave at one of the magnets along the coast. 

What To Bring

Below we’ve got a list that’ll prepare you for anything Mother Nature can throw at you. In true Rip Curl fashion, you’ll be feeling comfy and looking epic.

The Anti-Series Range
