    Where can I BUY Billabong, Quicksilver, other surfing brand (SPEEDO STYLE) Swimwear?

    I can't seem to find anywhere online that sells brief style swimwear from the main surfing brands.

    I've only seen one surfshop down here in FL that has Quicksilver brand speedo style swimsuits.

    I know when I was in Australia that they were available from Billabong, Quiksilver, and probably at least another brand or two, at most surf shops.

    I know they are usually just solid black with the logo on the middle of the back, but I'd really like to get one, as I'm getting ready to buy my first wetsuit and would love to have a speedo of the same brand and some boardies of the same brand, so everything can match through and through. I use to be (and I guess I still am) a big brand whore, wanting everything I'm wearing on a certain day to be the same brand.

    I get mine at the Marshall's or TJ Max at the Coral Ridge Mall. The Ross at Commercial and Dixie can be very good, too, but it's hit-or-miss.

    Reply from Bbucko:

    When I read the thread, i understood you to mean board shorts: sorry, it's late, I'm tired and should be in bed.

    But I have seen square-cuts and bikinis with those logos in those stores before. In fact, most of the swimwear that was in those stores last time i was there were from those labels and, of course, Speedo.

    stacy, thanks for the thought,

    though I'm not looking for BOARDSHORTS, I'm looking for BRIEF style swimwear made by these manufactures.

    Do they even make speedo type things? If you can't find them anywhere, it's probably because they dont make them?

    Curious - I've never seen them, and always thought the Surfwear companies were committed to Bored Shorts.

    Thanks for the suggestion, but I'd already looked on ebay Australia, I just looked again and don't see any on there right now..

    Quicksilver is a lil kids brand? thats news to me...I thought it was a popular surfing brand...

    I know at least quicksilver and billabong sell a few of these suits.

    I am not a big fan of certain brands.........

    for me it's the styles, the fabric, quality and durability........

    I don't care much about brands mumbo jumbo............

    in US forget about finding sexy SPEEDO brief style surfing wear

    it's too conservative here.

    I know exactly what you are talking about and quicksilver swim briefs are so comfy, the pouch and lining is really soft and they are not restrictive, but offer really nice form. I like how slim they are on the hips.

    shops like surf dive'n'ski stock them during the summer months. right now swimwear is heavily discounted, but most of what is out there is the same boring TYR suits and Speedo suits.

    i need to buy a new suit (in sydney) and a quicksilver one would be great.

    Thanks for proving to everyone that they do actually make these.

    Do you happen to know of any Australian company websites that possibly sell these items online?

    What kinds of Boring TYR and Speedo Suits are you referring to?
    like speedo style or trunks? like plain or prints?
