For Bob Hurley, it all started with the desire to make a better surfboard. Working closely with the best up-and-coming surfers in Huntington Beach and world champions like Rabbit Bartholomew, the Hurley label quickly became synonymous with the best high-performance shortboards on offer. Combining youth energy with a relentless drive to make surfing better, Bob seamlessly ventured into the apparel business, growing Billabong USA in the ’80s and ’90s to $100M before starting his own brand — Hurley — in 1999. For Bob, Hurley was more than an apparel company — it was an innovative, inclusive hub for every young creative mind with an affinity for the ocean. After partnering with Nike in 2002, Bob continues his mission of making Hurley the world’s most forward-thinking surf brand and a global Microphone for Youth.
