Rip Curl - Website

Culture

It takes a surfer to understand Rip Curl’s mission – “The Search”. It takes a team of surfers to deliver a digital platform that reaches to core of the surf culture. At Cuker we were stoked to take on the challenge. Rip Curl Stands for quality products including wetsuits, watches, and apparel.Rip Curl Stands behind their products with the best warranty and return policy in the industry for which they’ve grown a strong reputation.Ultimately Rip Curl wants to empower the surfer with everything they need to live their Search.We committed from the beginning to deliver an online experience that is on the same level as their brand, their products, and their reputation.

Wireframing

Rip Curl has an extensive product line and we needed to create the optimal information architecture so that the user can easily find the products through an intuitive navigation.

Design

After exploring several homepage options we selected the best design. We incorporated key stakeholders from Rip Curl in the design process to ensure that the design matches their brand and the culture.

Sharing

Social Media was integrated on the all of the product touch points to encourage users to share products with their friends.

With mobile optimized layouts, Surfers can shop on the go. We implemented the most advanced HTML5 to make the mobile performance ultra fast.

If I buy my wetsuit online, how do I know it fits? How do I choose the right one?

The Rip Curl Wetsuit Selector, that’s how. Cuker concepted and created an interactive “Wetsuit Selector” that allows surfers to select their gender, zip preference, season, region, height, weight, and performance features to find the right size and type of wetsuit.
