WATCH: Rip Curl's 'Expect Nothing'
Over the years, Rip Curl’s flagship Search boat the Quest 1 had been a home away from home to the Rip Curl girls, but alas, she is no more. Earlier this year she unfortunately sunk – just a week before the girls were due to go on a Search trip.
Locked and loaded the team needed to find another boat. The first call went out to Martin Daly, the man who first showed Curren, Davo, Dooma and Frankie then unknown Search perfection back in the early 90’s. If anyone had a vessel, he would. “No problem,” he said from some wind swept perch in Micronesia. “Sorted”.
And so the Search began again. Tyler from Australia, Nikki from El Salvador and Alana from Cyberland converging on the big blue cork that would soon leave port and float them away from it all.
