Established in 1973 by Gordon Merchant on the Gold Coast Australia, Billabong started off manufacturing home made (literally… as in: in his kitchen) board shorts for his friends and began distributing them to local surf shops. Jump ahead 40+ years and the Billabong brand is manufacturing a massive product range from wetsuits, watches, surfboards, outerwear and streetwear. Having learned a lot during thier lifetime, Billabong is now proud to present you with their innovative products which have gone through constant change in design and technology to keep on top of the industry.
