In 1973 Gordon and Rena Merchant began producing handmade boardshorts under their flat overlooking his beloved Burleigh. They were tough as teak, able to withstand not only the elements, but also able to absorb the sort of punishment that local juniors Guy Omerod and Rabbit Bartholomew would put those first issued trunks through. From those humble beginnings, Billabong was born. On it's 25th Anniversary in 1998, Billabong moved into the new premises at 1 Billabong Place, Burleigh Heads, featuring a state of the art new factory. One feature of the new complex is the Polynesian style Retail Showroom, that stands proudly at the forefront of the factory, displaying the largest range of Billabong product anywhere in the world. Billabong is involved in many promotions, but one thing that underpins the respect the company enjoys in the marketplace, is Billabong's commitment to pro boardsports and its team riders.

Billabong sponsors many events around the world, with a heavy emphasis on Junior athlete development, but the Jewels in the Crown are The Billabong Pro contests held in Teahupoo - Tahiti, Jeffreys Bay - South Africa, Mundaka - Spain and the Pipeline Masters in Hawaii.
