Rip Curl have further strengthened their professional team this week, by signing the Hawaiian surfer Mason Ho to their ranks. Mason joins names such as Mick Fanning, Matt Wilkinson and Gabriel Medina as part of one of the biggest and longest established surf brands on the planet.
26 year old Mason recently finished as runner up at the Volcom Pipe Pro and also bagged the win at the Da Hui Backdoor Shootout 2015 back in January and with an eye on the World Tour, he is a sure bet for Rip Curl to actively promote the brand. Mason also comes from proven stock as the Ho family name is highly acclaimed and includes Coco, Michael and Derek as part of the fold.
The video embedded below is the Rip Curl welcome video of Mason joining the team and shows him excitedly sticking his sponsors logo to his quiver of boards and showing why he is such hot property and why Rip Curl were keen to get him onboard.
