Quiksilver was established in the 1970s by Alan Green and John Law in Torquay, Australia. Starting out designing and selling their surf-specific wetsuits, their clothing and equipment line has become almost shorthand for quality sports gear. Not content with creating some of the finest watersports hardware and apparel in the world, the company have also made huge noise in the snowsport and the fashion world too. Their ethos to produce the best quality active lifestyle products has led to them driving innovation within their company: they were the first to capture the mood of the new generation of beachgoers with their geometric designs and bold colours, and were also the first brand to establish 100% sponsorship for athletes. With over 40 years of innovation and high-quality products under their belt, this brand is now one of the most favoured by active sports professionals all over the planet.
