Rip Curl Offers A Wetsuit Recycling Program

Do you have old wetsuits or worn-down wettie mats hanging around your house? Not sure what to do with them? Well wonder no more - Rip Curl is offering a Wetsuit Recycling Program, and they’re looking for your old rubber to make it happen.

This program has been trialled at the Rip Curl Torquay Store where the rubber you bring in will either be crumbed down and given another life as bitumen, or will be upcycled through Surfing Victoria’s Indigenous Program.

After an outstanding trial period, the program has been running indefinitely. Thank you to all who brought in their old wetties! Keep them coming.

So get to rummaging around your house, find that old rubber and head in to the Rip Curl Torquay Boardstore! A staff attendant will take the rubber off your hands.

If you're not in the Torquay region, and you still want to Recycle or Upcycle your old rubber, simply post a package to the Rip Curl Torquay Store with a note inside saying if you want to Recycle or Upcycle.
