Billabong Wetsuits, Board Shorts & more || Zak Surboards

 

Billabong was founded in 1973 by Gordon and Rena Merchant on the Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia in 1973. At first, they specialized in designing and creating board shorts and selling them to local surf shops. The durability of these shorts (a result of his triple-stitching technique) made these shorts increasingly popular, expanding the company over time with sponsoring of contests helping to increase the public's awareness of Merchant's product. By the 1980s, Billabong boardshorts had become quite sucessful throughout Australia and Gordon began to manufacture and distribute the worlwide.  Since then Billabong has expanded to produce a full range of clothing and a top notch range of surfing wetsuits and accessories.. Sponsoring many of the iconic surfers of the 80s, 90s, 00s and today including Occy, Rabbit, Andy Irons, Taj Burrow, Joel Parkinson & more Billabong are one of the best known surf brands in the world.
