SurfStitch.com and Stab Magazine have joined forces to bring you Trunk Talk, a mini-documentary series that details the lives of gents who make the trunks you surf in. Yep, these are the guys who minimise your rash, modify your maneuverability, mould your styles and maximise your time in the water.

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.

Together, we’ll be profiling a handful of boardie designers from your favourite brands.

Meet John Rapp, Patagonia‘s trunk designer. Tune in as he talks through the explicit design and detail behind each boardshort.
