Billabong was founded on Australia's Gold Coast in 1973 by surfer and surfboard shaper Gordon Merchant and his then partner, Rena. Those early days were rather inauspicious, with the pair designing boardshorts at home, cutting them out on the kitchen table and then carting the finished product around to the local surf shop to sell. The business found immediate traction, with surfers drawn to the superior functionality of the Billabong boardshorts. They were also far more durable courtesy of the unique triple-stitching technique developed by Gordon. This close attention to detail and quality has kept their business growing for over 40 years!

Est. in 2009 as Tobacco Road Outdoors, Apex Outfitter and Board Co. has evolved into an Action Sports Retailer. Apex Outfitter and Board Co. is owned and operated by local North Carolinians, Kyle and Megan Denis. “We wanted to fuse our passion for the outdoors with our love of action sports. Our shop is packed with high quality apparel and accessories from brands like Patagonia, The North Face, Mountain Hardwear, Columbia, Leatherman, Sanuk, Smart Wool and much more to outfit your adventurous side. If you need foot wear, camping gear, longboards, skate boards, stand up paddle boards (coming in the spring), jackets, backpacks, tents, sleeping bags or some last minute gifts, we've got you covered. If you don't see what you are looking for, let us know and we will do what we can to get it for you.”- Kyle Denis
