Quiksilver, Inc. is an Australian company based in Huntington Beach, California, United States, one of the world's largest manufacturers of surfwear and other boardsport-related equipment. Its logo, designed by company founder Alan Green and John Law in Torquay, Victoria, Australia, in 1969, was inspired by Japanese painter Hokusai's woodcut The Great Wave off Kanagawa. It consists of a large wave with a mountain on a red background.
The company also produces a line of apparel for young women, under the brands DC Shoes and Roxy. The Roxy logo consists of two copies of the Quiksilver logo, one reflected, forming a heart. Quiksilver has another line of apparel for women under the brand Quiksilver Women. As of 2013, the company had lost money for six years straight but was initiating a turnaround plan.
