24 Best Surf Brands For Clothing & Apparel

Suffice to say: surfing is a sport that requires you to act cool, as well as look it. Your tight muscle t-shirt and Louis Vuitton belt will have you standing out like a sore thumb at after-surf beers, as everyone will usually be wearing an oversized t-shirt and some board shorts or relaxed-fit jeans. Shoes are optional.

Unfortunately, there’s little we can do to improve your lineup awareness. What we can do, is help you look the part, with these brands that prove performance is no longer an affront to surfer fashion.

After all, to get into that laidback mindset, there’s nothing like rocking a few on-trend (or carefully chosen retrograde) threads; something the coolest brands below are more than happy to provide.

From Outerknown to Vissla to RVCA to TCSS to Former, these are the only brands the insides of your thighs will ever need to know when it comes to surfer clothing.

How we selected these brands…

We’ve gone for a mixture of old and new, some local and some international. Brands like TCSS are relatively new and happen to be 200 meters from my house, the others are emerging and getting lots of attention on the WSL.

Why trust us? James has surfed his whole life and Luc has been surfing for 3 years.
