From a home garage in a small seaside town just southwest of Melbourne to one of the largest boards sports brands, Quiksilver has come a long way since the two Torquay locals Alan Green and John Law first started making boardshorts in 1969.
In the fifty-one years of the brand’s existence, Quiksilver’s witnessed everything from the fluorescent pinks and greens of the eighties to the 90’s grunge trend. The brand has learned how to adapt to different eras, hence their success as one of the leading snowboard outerwear brands.

Drawing on Quiksilver’s long and fruitful journey as a board sports brand, their new ‘High Altitude’ collection is a legit reflection of the brands legacy. By combining the retro look with a breeze of modernising fresh air, Quiksilver’s created a collection that represents the brands’ many years of expertise. It’s a colourful outerwear collection that can be worn both on and off the mountain.
‘Inspired by an elevated state of mind’, as Quiksilver puts it, the ‘High Altitude’ line draws a lot of its inspiration from archived Quiksilver outerwear patterns. The collection consists of two jackets (The Dome and The Forever 2L Capsule Gore-Tex), the Beater snow pants, a few jumpers and some other cool bits like a cap and a pair of mitts.
