Quiksilver Partners with Free Ride Legend Mark Richards
March 2010, New York, NY – Quiksilver and Free Ride generation icon, twin fin pioneer and 4x ASP world champion Mark Richards come together in the creation of a limited offering of vintage style products inspired by MR’s legacy in the surfing world.
Throughout the 70’s, Richards could usually be seen scoping out the swells in his signature tank with customized monogram logo. Thanks to Quiksilver, a re-issue of this authentic look from Mark’s competition days is now available in an eleven-piece collection.
Unique styles including 16″ and 21″ board shorts with custom embroidery, screen-printed organic cotton tees and tanks as well as a foam trucker hat with signature MR embroidery patch and a photo-real Mark Richards surf image under the visor are all part of this nostalgic capsule collection.
Mark set the standard for high performance surfing during the legendary ‘75/76 North Shore season with radical flair. This collection pays tribute to his truly unique style.
