Born on Australia’s Gold Coast in 1973, Billabong came to be designing and selling board shorts to local surf shops. These early board shorts gained enormous popularity thanks to a simple, yet fundamental construction technique and triple stitching, which made them extremely durable and perfect for the demands of a life at the shore. Today Billabong’s heritage shines through, with quality, durability and style still at the core of their range.
FACT: ‘Billabong’ is the term used to describe a pond that has been formed and left behind after a river changes course. They usually dry up through the hot Australian summers and fill again through the rainy season. It is derived from the indigenous Australian word ‘Bilaban’, belonging to the Wiradjuri language meaning, ‘a creek that only runs during the rainy season’.
