RIPNDIP is an American skate brand, producing everything from T-shirts and caps to skateboard decks. You can always recognize RIPNDIP's design by the little naughty cat, which almost always finds its way into the picture.
Ryan O'Connor started writing RIPNDIP on his skateboard when he was a child at skate camps. And from there, the fire grew and spread. The following year, he arrived at the skate camp with a lot of printed T-shirts under his arm. All participants were interested in the clothes - to great frustration for the leaders who would rather have the participants to go with the camp's own T-shirts.
O'Connor continued his journey touring around to various local skate parks and sharing the T-shirts, which he himself had printed in his mother's garage.
Now the team behind RIPNDIP is based in Los Angeles and even designs skateboards, skate clothes and accessories from scratch, with the wild graphic designes by New Yorker Jayme Lemperle.
