Welcome to Trunk Talk, a mini documentary series from Stab and SurfStitch.com that details the lives of gents who make the trunks we surf in. You wanna talk under-appreciated? These are the cats who minimise your rash, modify your manoeuvrability, mould your style, maximise your time in the water. This is our way of profiling these gents, just a little, so you might better understand just where your surf shorts are coming from.
Each boardshort style is unique, and that’s because each designer is unique. These are the men behind the scenes. There’s no precise science – there’s only various influences from each designer’s world. And these are the worlds we explore in Trunk Talk.
