On May 4, professional surfing co-founder, Vans Triple Crown of Surfing Executive Director, and global surfing icon Randy Rarick announced his full retirement.

Rarick’s announcement came during the Hawaii Sports Hall of Fame induction ceremony where he was honored as a “Pioneer.” He now passes the torch to a newly-structured World Surf League (WSL) Hawaii team that will be led by General Manager Jodi Wilmott.

With combined passions for surfing, surf travel and professionalism, Rarick paved the way for generations of surfers, and lasting, positive impacts of his contributions will be felt for generations to come.

“My efforts along the way have always been to honor the sport of surfing and the meaning it has brought to my life and countless others around the world,” Rarick said. “Surfing is truly, uniquely Hawaiian and I’m honored to have had a career that has shaped and spanned my entire life. I would also like to honor others along the way who have helped me to do that, including Fred Hemmings, Buffalo Keaulana, Rell Sunn and Gerry Lopez.”

Rarick also added after the event, “I just want to say thanks so much to Windowseat for making this video! It was a real hit and set the tone for the night. This was a great evening with the Governor there and many of Hawaii’s sports heroes. I thank you guys for making me look good.”

Inducted alongside Rarick was Sunny Garcia (pictured above with Randy), 2000 World Champion and six-time Vans Triple Crown of Surfing champion, whose superlative career has spanned 30 years under Rarick’s watch.

Windowseat had the pleasure of working with Randy for nearly a decade on the Vans Triple Crown of Surfing on Hawaii’s famous North Shore. Those years are some of our fondest memories as an agency and we will forever cherish our friendship and appreciate the opportunity to work with a legend among legends.

Enjoy your retirement Randy! Mucho Mahalos.
