By Outerknown Journey

Nothing is more symbolic of our constant evolution as a brand than our APEX series. Developed and tested by Outerknown co-founder and 11x World Champion surfer Kelly Slater, we launched with the most high-performance surf trunks on the market, hands down. We set the bar high, but we knew that was just the beginning.

Surfline said it right: “They call an APEX predator an ‘APEX’ one because that creature is at the top of its designated food chain. No rivals. No surprises.” Our APEX Trunks are engineered for maximum performance — and perform they do. You’ve got ultralight 4-way stretch fabric paired with stitch-free welded seams reinforced in all the right places (these won’t bust out the back). The best part is that they’re constructed in a Fair Trade Certified™ factory and made with recycled plastic water bottles. What’s more epic than that?

Needless to say, they’ve been best sellers since day one, with five-star reviews across the board. Building upon our strengths, we launched the APEX Hybrid Trunks earlier this year for adventures by land and sea. These are walk shorts that work just as well in the water aka the ultimate travel shorts — if you only pack one pair this is it. Light, durable, quick-drying and made entirely from recycled plastic bottles. 

But our adventure doesn’t stop there. We’re excited to expand the APEX series with new designs this fall to include street-ready jackets and pants in performance fabrics, so you’re always ready wherever the road takes you.
