In 1969, Quiksilver Boardshorts created the world’s first functional surfing board shorts, establishing the iconic shapes, groundbreaking art, and an aesthetic that went on to define a generation. With hand screen-printed contemporary art, tailoring and quality fabrics at the heart of the brand’s ethos, the label introduced iconic new cuts, from ‘The Yoke’ – the first tailored waistband — to ‘The Scallop’ hem, and ‘The Arch,’ that all went on to become the blueprint for board shorts and the swimwear industry. For 2013, this iconic history has been carefully referenced to create the Quiksilver Original Boardshorts collection – a celebration of the brand’s DNA. Using the finest materials, easily identified by their very touch and quality, the collection brings back the original Quiksilver Boardshorts’ detailing and finishes — resulting in some of the most authentic board shorts available today.
