Amazing but one major flaw

These are by far the best performance surf trunks I have ever owned BUT they do have one major flaw that I wish they would fix. The drawstring fly holes are not substantially reinforced and are only sewed and taped. Overtime these wore out and started to tear. Everything else about these trunks could not be better but for the price I would expect something better regarding sustainability of product. I am only writing this review in hopes that they would change the design to use something more substantial than just sewing at such a highly used and strained area of the trunks

Best board shorts that I've ever worn!

I live in NC so I surf in board shorts close to six months out of the year. I have pals in the surf industry, so I've always managed to score the high end trunks from other brands. I have been wanting to try the Apex trunks for a while, just to see if there was a big difference, and I was immediately impressed. The Apex trunks are super light, incredibly comfortable, and they're absolutely worth the $145 price tag if you want to wear the best trunks. I did have a few issues with the back pocket billowing with water (zipper closed, of course) but it doesn't happen frequently. I just flatten the pocket with my hand when I'm paddling so it's a quick fix. The trunks definitely fit true to size. I couldn't be more stoked.

Great shorts

Spent a 12 days in Tahiti and pretty much wore these every day. Did 15 dives and no wear or tear visible. Super light as if they are not even on (luckily they were though)

Best board shorts yet.

I was a little hesitant to pay so much for a pair of surf trunks but after using them understood that they were worth ever penny. They are comfortable, light, don’t bunch up and you kinda just forget they are even on. Highly recommend the Apex trunks.
