Billabong, the famous Surf and lifestyle Australian brand was founded in 1973 by ex-Maroubra surfer Gordon Merchant. The company started in his garage and was selling boardshorts only to local surfers. Merchant quickly realised that the success of his boardshorts was due to their durability. As he developed the company he used this principle as a pillar to create and develop a much larger range of durable surfing garments. Based on that very principle, Billabong wetsuits are ready to withstand even the toughest elements. Both the men's and women's wetsuits collection will be durable, high performing and comfortable to wear.
