In 1969, Alan Green and John Law from Torquay, England, started crafting surfboards in their garage. Recognizing an untapped market, they decided to create their own source of income.
With authenticity, innovation, pride, self-assuredness, and belief, they managed to transform Quiksilver into the leading company in outdoor action sports apparel.
In 1973, Quiksilver was born. Quiksilver's flagship product, which remains iconic to this day, was the "boardshort."
Quiksilver boardshorts quickly gained recognition, and the demand for them grew. In a short time, Quiksilver was available throughout Australia. The top surfers of the 1970s chose Quiksilver shorts for their adventures in the waves.
Continued support from athletes like the world-renowned surfing champion Kelly Slater and women's surfing world champion Lisa Andersen demonstrates the sustainability of Quiksilver's passionate approach.
The Quiksilver logo, a wave and a snow-covered mountain, immediately conveys the company's essence. It represents excellence and authenticity, inspired by a Japanese woodcut depicting a typhoon wave and Mount Fuji.
The name "Quiksilver" derives from the term ancient alchemists used to describe the transformation of base metals into gold. This reflects the company's goal of turning high-quality fabrics into exceptional products.
Today, Quiksilver is not just an apparel company.
It is a company deeply rooted in the history of demanding outdoor lifestyles, offering products that reflect the spirit of adventure and freedom. Quiksilver continues to inspire athletes and sports enthusiasts worldwide with its high quality and innovative product design.
