Roxy - www.roxy.com
When Quiksilver decided to start a women's line in 1990, it was a gutsy move. The surf market has always been a fickle one. And female surfers, despite their achievements in and out of the water, hadn't drummed up nearly the notoriety nor the community that guys had long enjoyed. But great ideas always take some guts. And the company saw the untapped women's surf market as a huge opportunity. Turns out they were right.
