Billabong Employees Take Over Kelly’s Surf Ranch For a Day

Product testing, company meeting, a day at the ‘beach’, pure fun- Whatever you want to call it Billabong Showed up to Kelly’s Surf Ranch and had a blast.

Posted on January 7, 2018

 

It’s no surprise that we love sharing videos of Shane Dorian. He’s been a peoples favorite ever since he started shooting tubes at Pipeline in his teenage years. We hosted a clip of Shane and his son Jackson surfing here recently. It was pretty amazing to see someone of Jackson’s age surfing this fast-moving wave so well. This time around he arrived with Billabong’s Wetsuit Division.

As we all know Kelly has a long-standing relationship with Quicksilver. Although, many don’t know that Quicksilver (Oaktree Capital) purchased Billabong (as reported by TheInertia). It’s safe to assume that there’s certainly a positive relationship there. However, it’s unclear as to whether Kelly invited the Billabong guys to the ranch or they just decided to throw down and rent the place out for a day.

Either way what we see here is three things: The guys designing and building your wetsuits clearly surf really well, they had an absolute tube-fest, and Shane Dorian is just a pleasure to watch whether in a wave park or in the ocean.
