Who is Quiksilver
Keeping things real since 1969, Quiksilver has made searching for that perfect wave into a way of life. Taking action sports off-course, we represent an international community of wild surf seekers and mountain mavericks, surfing down mountains and conquering the crest of the wave. Bringing surf, ski and snowboarding together, we might have been born on Australia’s iconic coastline, but we’ve made boardsports into a peak to beach adventure into the unknown. Turning our pipe dreams into tidal techniques, we’re the surf brand that brought you the Vee waist and the snowboard brand that turned up the heat on freestyle fashion. The future of action sports is here, stay high…
Translating shoreline style into a collection of coast to coast casuals, Quiksilver is the unofficial outfitter for surfing’s point break pounders and ocean cool kids. Designing a selection of clothes, accessories and shoes that don’t follow the current of conventional surf trends, our sea and mountain apparel is inspired by today’s modern mavericks. Working with a creative cross section of industry insiders and professional riders, Quiksilver clothing bridges the gap between fashion and functionality, designing killer carving gear for the tireless barrel chaser.
