Surfers Suing Rip Curl After Nightmare Trip

by The Editors on May 9, 2017

Five Orange County, California and three Austrailian surfers are suing Rip Curl after the 8 were allegedly left to fend for themselves after the charter surf boat they were on (the Quest 1, formerly known as the Indies Trader II) began sinking during the night of July 18, 2015, according to a story in the Orange County Register.

The eight men are now suing surf giant Rip Curl, which organized the excursion, alleging the company knew the vessel was in disrepair and failed to provide any aid or assistance after they were rescued. The lawsuit, filed last month, also names Rip Curl executives and the boat’s operators, PT Neptune Adventures, which is described in the suit as a “shell” company set up by Rip Curl to “avoid liability and circumvent regulatory compliance” for the Quest 1.

Click the link for the rest of this nightmare surf story. From the sounds of the complaint, the surfers are lucky to be alive.
