Rola embarks on new adventure with brand ambassadors

Posted 01/02/2014

Rola, Australia's original roof rack company, has today announced it has partnered up with three new brand ambassadors in pro big wave surfer Ryan Hipwood; pro wake boarder Josh Sanders; and pro mountain bike rider Niki Gudex.

Since Rola started making their first roof rack and carrying accessories in the early 1980’s, the company has been focused on helping people experience their adventure. Rola’s motto of ‘just add adventure’ is synonymous with the brand and the new ambassadors help deliver this to their markets.

Ryan, Josh and Niki will work closely with the company to test and develop products, participate in marketing campaigns, be involved in instructional and fitment videos, and make appearances at shows and events.


About Ryan Hipwood


At 27 years old Ryan Hipwood is one of the most well-respected and recognizable big wave chargers in the world. As an accomplished free-surfer, Hippo found his niche in the surfing world by discovering the art of Big Wave surfing. In 2009, Ryan was runner-up in the prestigious Billabong XXL Big Wave Awards for surfing a monster wave at Shipsterns, Tasmania that nearly took his life. And in 2012 he was nominated for Billabong XXL Ride of the Year for his massive backhand barrel at Cloud Break, Fiji.

Hippo is always pushing the limits and is constantly searching the globe on an endless quest to find the biggest, most perfect waves. It is this passion for chasing monster slabs and fearless nature that has made Ryan one of the most photographed and respected surfers in the world.
