Quiksilver Launches New Surf Website Quiksilver.com/go

Check out Quiksilver.com/GO to see Quiksilver's latest web creation.  Featuring the Quiksilver Diamond DobbyT Technology boardshorts and Quiksilver's surf team, Kelly Slater, Dane Reynolds, Julian Wilson, Jeremy Flores, Fred Patacchia, Clay Marzo and the Quiksilver Young Guns, the new interactive website showcases the greatest choice one can make - "in life you either do or you don't", in surfing you GO.

Quiksilver.com/GO delivers a heart-pounding look at what it means to GO, with exclusive videos and photo galleries from Quiksilver's elite surf team.  The new site also highlights Quiksilver's latest in boardshort innovation, Diamond DobbyT Technology.  Demonstrating the boardshorts' advanced features through flash animation and interactive graphics, Quiksilver.com/GO shows the superior quality of the new Diamond DobbyT Technology boardshorts and why they are the top choice of Quiksilver's surf team.

Because of the innovative, embossed diamond-patterned material used in the Diamond DobbyT Technology boardshorts, 30% less of the fabric actually touches the skin when compared to typical boardshorts, resulting in a virtually rash-free surf experience.  In addition to virtually eliminating rashing and chafing, the material reaches the pinnacle of comfort and performance with 33% horizontal stretch and remarkable fabric memory to maintain shape.  On top of these features, the fabric is virtually weightless and dries two times faster than the average boardshort.  So whether you're charging perfect Pipe or just lounging in a hot tub, these boardshorts are designed to provide you with the most comfortable and technical in-water experience imaginable.

For Spring 2009, Quiksilver is offering five styles with Diamond DobbyT; Cool Out, Mega Bleaker, Blended, Reflex and Tunnel Vision.  These shorts along with the Young Guns boardshorts series are available to purchase online at Quiksilver.com/GO
