The Rip Curl Story
By Tim Baker (Penguin)
At first glance this is a book about surfing, and there’s certainly plenty of that to digest. But it’s also a story of business success and how friends Brian Singer and Doug Warbrick created Rip Curl on a whim to make surfboards in 1969. Fifty years later, the company is a global conglomerate and one of the most recognised surf brands in the world.
