Quiksilver is a brand of surf-inspired apparel and accessories that was founded in 1969 in Torquay, Australia, but is now based in Huntington Beach, California. It is one of the world's largest brands of surfwear and boardsport-related equipment. The parent company changed its name in March 2017 from Quiksilver, Inc. to Boardriders, Inc., and is the owner of the brands Quiksilver, Roxy and DC Shoes. In 2018, Boardriders acquired Billabong International Limited, gaining the Billabong, Element, Von Zipper, RVCA and XCEL brands. Quiksilver manufactures and sells a wide range of products that include sportswear (swimsuits), clothing (t-shirts, polo shirts, flannels, jackets, hoodies, pants, shorts), footwear (sneakers, sandals), accessories (hats, backpacks, wallets). The company also produces a line of apparel for young women, under the Roxy brand. Another line of apparel for women is under the brand Quiksilver Women. In 2013, Quiksilver initiated a turnaround plan after suffering financial losses for six years. However, by September 2015, the company filed for bankruptcy. After emerging from bankruptcy in early 2016, the company once again became privately held, with Oaktree Capital Management as the majority shareholder.
