Billabong has been a huge supporter of SWELL since day one. Billabong’s long and fabled history was instrumental in bringing surfing to the forefront of action sports. It all began in 1973 when Gordon and Rena Merchant began making handmade boardshorts in their small Australian flat overlooking their beloved Burleigh Head break. To date, Billabong hosts surfing’s biggest contests and events, include the Billabong Pipeline Masters, the World Juniors, the XXL Big Wave Awards and countless others. SWELL is proud to offer the best selection of Billabong men’s surf clothing and gear, including Billabong board shorts, surf t-shirts, tanks, hats, sweatshirts, flannels, shorts, pants, jeans, Billabong wetsuits, bags and accessories.
