Rip Curl is pleased to announce the addition of Scott ‘POD’ Banuelos to the Marketing Department. Scott has been actively involved in the core sports industry since he turned pro at the Katin event while sponsored by Hurley Surfboards.

“I’m excited to be a part of a global company with Rip Curl’s history and credibility. I’m looking forward to developing a close relationship with everyone at Rip Curl, especially all the athletes”, POD said. POD continues, “I especially wouldn’t mind getting to know them on one of the infamous SEARCH trips.”

POD’s previous role as Marketing Director for Counter Culture, POD has a broad range of experience in marketing. He will head up the marketing of Rip Curl’s surf and wake athletes and assist in general promotions.

“POD has a unique blend of core surf devotion and a feel for the street. Perfect attributes for today’s market,” said Mark Price, Director of Marketing at Rip Curl. “I think he will be a great compliment to our existing marketing staff.”

POD will be at the Rip Curl ASR booth and can be reached at 760-603-6700 after September 8th.
