If you’ll be participating in some winter sports, then the range of jackets and trousers is endless. Not only do they look cool and colourful, but they have tons of useful features such as waterproof membranes, ventilation zips, and an adjustable waist. Looking for the sea? Then watch out for the sun, which is even brighter on the water. A UV-resistant Lycra T-shirt will protect you even better than sunscreen will. So it’s definitely a worthwhile investment.
Plus, Quiksilver not only cares about the sport, it also cares about the planet. The brand works with organic cotton and sustainable polyester, its first winter sports collection was made with fabric remnants from board shorts, they use recycled plastic waste from the sea… The list of climate efforts goes on and on. All under the motto, “Don’t destroy what you came to enjoy!”
To think it all started in 1969 with board shorts with metal studs and Velcro, a real revolution in the surf world at the time. When Quiksilver crossed the ocean to Europe, it turned out that surfing in the northern hemisphere is not always wonderfully warm. So they expanded the collection in the 1980s to include snowboarding and skiwear, resulting in the world-famous mountains and waves logo!
