Quiksilver lost an important part of the company just days ago. Pierre Agnes, Quiksilver’s chief executive officer, was out on an early morning boating trip never to return. His boat was found washed up on the French coast near La Graviere in Hossegor, an iconic world tour spot. After discovering the boat, French officials searched for Mr. Agnes in the hopes of finding him adrift. However, he was not found, and the search was just called off. The surfing world is saying goodbye to a most influential leader.
