Mick Signs With Rip Curl For Another Ten Years

Imagine, in today's climate, working for the same company for 30 years? Mick won't have to. After 20 years (and three World Titles) with career sponsor Rip Curl, Mick has put pen to paper and signed with Rippy for a whole nother decade. A lifetime deal, they're calling it.

And it makes sense, considering how hard it would be to picture Mick with anything other than a Rip Curl sticker on the nose of his surfboard. Though, the same could have been said for Kelly Slater and his relationship with Quiksilver. It seems Rip Curl were in no way going to risk the same sort of situation, and neither was Mick – both parties know what they have in their symbiotic relationship.

Here's Rip Curl big dog ("Group Marketing Chairman") Neil Ridgeway on the deal:

"Mick isn’t just a World Champion surfer, he is the most important surfer in the history of our company."

And here's Mick, feeling mutual:

“Being a part of Rip Curl has been more than just a sponsorship, having the relationship I have had with the company and the people within it, including the Founders Claw Warbrick and Brian Singer, has been a huge part of my career and the last 20 years of my life. Signing this 10 year deal is another cornerstone in that relationship, and I can’t wait to get out there and get on The Search!”

Mick's job with Rip Curl in the next phase of his career will be to spend the next 10 years that Rip Curl's flagship campaign, The Search, chasing perfect and remote waves. He'll also continue his other enterprises (MF Softboards, Balter etc.).
