Billabong was established in 1973 by Gordon and Rena Merchant on Australia’s Gold Coast. The duo found immediate success in the surfing community thanks to their triple-stitched boardshorts, which gradually led to company sponsored contests and special events in an effort to attract the attention of professional watersport competitors. As the brand gained increasing levels of attention, it began to expand into other boardsports including skate, snow and wake.
