Rip Curl’s SearchGPS watch is already a favorite for surfers from all over the world.



The Rip Curl SearchGPS Watch brought some innovation to the line up. You can track your surf, register your top speed and distance and rack up your wave count in each session. Sync your data to the Rip Curl Search App or Website to re-live your surf with location maps, image sharing and graphic charts which showcase your session. Surfers from all aver the planet are already addicted to this equipment, as it brings more fun and also data that can improve their performances.


Indonesian pro surfer Garut Widiarta (sponsored by Rip Curl) is one of the athletes that uses SearchGPS.  “Well the SearchGPS watch is a very cool item, bro . It has new technology and it makes surf more exciting when you do it with friends that have the same watch, that way we make surfing even more fun, by asking each other how long the wave as, how fast we were going… It just makes me more hungry to go to bit them (laughs). And at the end of a surf sesion we can upload straight away on the phone, and thats make it even cooler!”

Portuguese pro surfer and a member of the Rip Curl team, Francisco Alves also uses SearchGPS, and had nothing but good things to say about it. “It’s awesome, I think it’s the best watch a surfer can have. It basically lets you know all you need: if you’re fast, if you got a lot of waves… Every time I surf with it I try to make as many waves as possible, and try going as fast as I can. It’s like a silent competition with a watch”. 

Gabriel Medina, current number 1 surfer in the world, Mick Fanning - still ASP's world champion -, Owen Wright, Alana Blanchard and Matt Wilkinson are among a large group of surfers that just can't do without this watch.
