Billabong began its long, amazing ride in 1973 on the Gold Coast of Australia. It all started with a single, humble pair of boardshorts and a crocheted bikini crafted on Gordon Merchant’s kitchen table. Today, Billabong is the leader in surf-inspired apparel and accessories for men and women with a simple mission: to inspire youth through progressive surf culture. Billabong’s authenticity and brand integrity is woven into everything the brand does. Billabong women’s apparel and swimwear are beach loving, spirited, effortless, lived in and playful and inspire women everywhere who share a deep connection with the ocean and beach lifestyle.
