Quiksilver has developed from a 1970's boardshop company into a multinational apparel company grounded in the philosophy of youth. The characteristics of the Quiksilver lifestyle are best described by photos rather than words. The 2003 annual opens with 60 pages of photos before any words appear. Laminated chipboard on the front and back covers give this report the feel of a prized coffee table book. 136 pages, 7 3/4 x 10, perfect-bound, UV inks throughout.
