Rookie Rippers

19-22 October 2023

IT’S ON! Get involved and enter Rookie Rippers for the chance to join TEAM O’NEILL.

Yes...we’re back and excited to announce the second phase of our social media competition; we’re giving you another chance to win a spot at our Youth Surf Academy, Rookie Rippers... with guaranteed waves!

We had a blast during the last competition and welcomed two new rippers to the family: Teresa Pereira and Francisco Magalhaes. So, send your video entries in and start prepping to secure your spot.

Sixteen lucky winners will have the chance to refine their skills and take their surfing to the next level, mentored by Team O’Neill riders. Location: The Wave in Bristol, UK.

We’re looking for junior surfers from all over Europe and the UK, aged between 12 and 16. Post your best single wave surf videos now!

We'll be selecting the top videos that advance to the final round, where our Team O’Neill riders will then select the winners to surf under their team flags!

Once you’re in your team, get ready to challenge yourself and push your limits in and out of the water. Only one team will be crowned as The Rookie Rippers champions, and the two strongest surfers will earn a year's sponsorship and join Team O’Neill!
