Billabong was founded on Australia's Gold Coast in 1973 by surfer and surfboard shaper Gordon Merchant and his then partner, Rena. Those early days were rather inauspicious, with the pair designing board shorts at home, cutting them out on the kitchen table and then carting the finished product around to the local surf shop to sell. Now they are internationally selling across the globe and have some of the best surfers in the world on their team.
Billabong is a surf brand that’s been around since the 70s and started off selling board shorts on the Gold Coast. Since then, the Billabong range has grown, with both men’s and women’s styles, and includes everything you need for a trip to the beach or a day of surfing. Billabong has sponsored many pro-surfers and has become the go-to brand for anyone hitting the waves. Take a look at Natural Necessity’s range of Billabong and shop online or in-store.
There are a number of styles of Billabong swimwear to choose from, depending on whether you’re going to be surfing, or simply relaxing on the beach.
If you’re just planning to swim and sunbathe, Billabong has a range of cute bikini tops and bottoms, so you can choose a style that suits you. The range includes:
Whether you prefer sporty bikinis with extra coverage, or want to minimise tan lines, there’s a look for you.
Billabong’s board shorts are one of their most popular swimwear items. Their board shorts have been made for decades, with features like lightweight fabrics and triple stitching, making them perfect for catching a wave. There’s also a range of wetsuits, suitable for amateur and pro surfers who need a lightweight, practical suit.
Billabong clothing is designed for those who love the beach, or just want a relaxed look. From cotton and linen sun dresses to slip on over a bikini, to simple cargo shorts and tees, the range is perfect for wearing on long sunny days. There are even a range of practical accessories to finish off your looks, from straw hats to baseball caps, hooded towels, beach bags and more. There’s also footwear such as thongs and beach-ready sandals, and even luggage for when you are travelling to tournaments.
Billabong also offers some styles for beach parties and nights at the bar. You’ll find dresses and co-ord sets for women, plus shirts for men that are suitable for night-time wear, with styles such as bold, colourful prints to still give you that beachy look. Shop online, and you can get a range of looks from Billabong at Natural Necessity.
It’s not just adults who can enjoy the Billabong look. Billabong Australia offers a kid’s range, with mini versions of their colourful clothing and swimwear, as well as surfing gear for those who are just starting out. Their kid’s range is made to the same high quality as their adult gear, so they can feel confident when they’re out on the water and look just as cool as you.
