RIPNDIP was founded in Florida in Orlando in 2009 by Ryan O'Connor.
The brand, like all good ideas, was born almost by chance among a group of friends who were skating together. Today the brand RIPNDIP and their mascot, the cat Nermal Lord, have emerged and have become a reference point in the skate scene and various skate shops around the globe.
O 'Connor has developed its brand RIPNDIP, say, the old way as if there were no Internet and social. He has printed a series of T-shirts screen printed in the garage of the mother and giving it to children around the skate park in the nation.
