Oxbow was founded in Pont-Audemer, Normandy in 1985, making it the first French surfwear company. The brand has grown dramatically since then to become one of the most trusted activewear names in the world.#Having branching out into ski and snowboard clothing and accessories, it has also built on its reputation in the watersports field by adding windsurfing collections to its portfolio. Before long, the brand also entered the world of motorcross, adding a whole new collection of activewear to its range. #In 1988, Oxbow organised the first ever Lacanau Pro, a surfing competition that now enjoys global recognition and attracts thousands of surfers and spectators from all over the world every year. The iconic four-petal logo, representing the four sports the brand focuses on, is synonymous with innovation and success, and is proudly worn by dedicated athletes and casual hobbyists alike in countries all over the world. Combining avant-garde design aesthetics with high quality materials and unrivalled construction techniques, Oxbow has been the sportswear brand of choice for some of the greatest surfers of the past three decades.
So appealing are the brand's designs that many items have crossed over into the fashion mainstream due to their durability, comfort and excellent quality.
