HURLEY: Hurley began its tradition in Southern California in the late 1970’s. The Hurley surfboard was established in Costa Mesa in 1979. Later, in 1982, Bob and his business manager, Joe K., began pursuing a hot Australian clothing brand, Billabong. Billabong USA was then established as a separate entity and licensee for Billabong.
By 1995, the Billabong USA team began noticing a shift in the consciousness of the consumer. Bob and the team realized that the modern surfer also loved fashion, skate, snow, music and art. They began to rethink what it meant to be a surfer brand. By the end of 1998, it became clear this vision did not serve the Billabong brand globally and the team had their own vision for the future. It was then decided to give back the licensing agreement and start Hurley.
Hurley was a major success. The essence of Hurley is based on our love of the ocean and the constant state of change. With deep roots in the beach culture, they are all about inclusion and positivity.
