Quiksilver – Founded in 1969 by Carol McDonald and Tim Davis, Quiksilver is considered the founder of the technical boardshort (with the Velcro fly being the major asset, combined with quick drying material – set to change the standard in boardshorts across the industry). From the Quiksilver boardshort company, they have developed and grown into a leading multinational clothing and accessory company for all boardsports. Quiksilver are credited with a number of ‘firsts’ including beig the first to introduce fabric stretch boardshorts in the early 80’s, Quiksilvers ‘The Performers’ surf film – being the first surf film to be released as a home video, snow-wear – Quiksilver were the first surf company to adapt the style of the beach and combine it with technical outerwear for snow sports, and probably most notably, Quiksilver were the first to establish the 100% sponsorship of athletes – noted for Tom Carrol’s sponsorship in 1988 (a $1 million contract). Quiksilver now represent a number of world class sportsmen and women – whatever the boardsport (surf, skate or snow), with athletes such as Travis Rice, Kelly Slater and Dane Reynolds under their belt. The essence of the Quiksilver brand is young, lively and creative and the Quiksilver family of brands represents this. From DC clothing and footwear, to Roxy womenswear and accessories, the Quiksilver brand is known worldwide for symbolising sports, the outdoors and more.
