The Original Arch DNA
Comfort, performance and sustainability. The Original Arch is a boardshort like no other. Here are a few of the things that make it, well, original.
The design that changed everything: Quiksilver’s 1981 Arch panel, which follows the body’s lines, increasing flexibility and allowing for better surfing.
When boardshorts were born, we didn’t have the luxury of matching stitch color to fabric color. Turns out it looks good, so we kept it around.
It wouldn’t be complete without an iconic logo. Ours is on a lurex patch woven into the short — you won’t find this anywhere else.
A 4-way stretch fabric made from recycled plastic bottles. It feels good in the water, out of the water and everywhere you want to take it.
