No big investors. No one to answer to. No rules to follow. Octopus is surfer-owned and run, built with one purpose: To make surf gear that lives up to the rigorous demands of their world-class team that includes the likes of Michael February, Harry Bryant, and Dylan Graves. And like their diverse roster of talent, Octopus lets their product do the talking.
In the first-ever Vans x Octopus collaboration, you will find an assortment of footwear and apparel that lives up to this promise, including the Vans x Octopus Surf Trunk 3. Every item is restrained and minimal on the outside while being technical, performance-oriented, and uncompromising on the inside. If it’s not going to get you where you’re going and help you perform once you get there, you won’t see the Octopus name on it.
Crafted specifically for surfing, the Vans x Octopus Surf Trunk 3 will keep you Off The Wall and in the water all day long. Vans’ new and improved 4-way stretch combines functional benefits with an old school boardshort look, featuring lightweight fabric that dries quickly, has a long-lasting mechanical stretch, and uses a compact weave structure that creates a smooth finish against the skin for comfort. The anti-rash interior has no inseam or fly, and the Trunk Lock, our most progressive waist closure ever, provides an easily adjustable, secure fit with updated elastic webbing in the waistband and a new lower-profile buckle.
The Surf Trunk also includes a wetsuit top connector, an ergonomic side pocket, and logo branding at the left thigh. Model is 6 feet tall and wearing a size 32.
