The iconic Australian surf and lifestyle brand Billabong was started in humble beginnings by Gordon Merchant.

The name Havaianas is Portuguese for Hawaiians. The first pair of Havaianas was born in 1962 in Brazil, based on the traditional Japanese sandal known as the Zori, whose soles are made of rice straw. The texture of Havaianas’ rubber soles are like rice grains, one of the many details that make Havaianas unmistakable. 2 years later, in 1964, practically every worker in Brazil wore a pair. Today, Havaianas are the most popular flip flops in the world, with 200 million pairs being sold every year.

Today, you can find Bob “product-testing” at home in Newport Beach, Hawaii or at some of the best waves around the world.
