Quiksilver, Inc. is an American retail sporting company, founded in Torquay (Australia), and based in Huntington Beach, California and one of the world's largest manufacturers of surfwear and other boardsport-related equipment. Its logo, designed by company founder Alan Green and John Law in Torquay, Victoria, Australia, in 1969, was inspired by Japanese painter Hokusai's woodcut The Great Wave off Kanagawa. It consists of a large wave with a mountain on a red background. The company also produces a line of apparel for young women, under the brand Roxy. The Roxy logo consists of two copies of the Quiksilver logo, one reflected, forming a heart. Quiksilver has another line of apparel for women under the brand Quiksilver Women. As of 2013, the company lost financially for six years and initiated a turnaround plan in an attempt to resolve this. However, in 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. Wikipedia

    It was heartbreaking. More than enough to haunt even the headstrong.    Last year, Connor O’Leary finished 15th on the World Qualifying Series. That’s two spots away from World Tour qualification — which means a year’s worth of hard work, hundreds of flights, close…

    It was flat this morning. Dead flat. A lake, hopeless and cold. The decision to surf or not to surf was made at 8 AM and everybody expected it to be a big fat no.
