Born and bred in Melbourne, Funky Trunks is the Aussie label for guys to make a statement when the pants come down. With crazy colours in comfy styles, spread across an extensive range of swimwear, underwear, beachwear and apparel, Funky Trunks is designed for serious performance without the serious attitude.
We live by our motto, go fast, defy conformity, have balls. That means we’re going to make you the best products that we can, so that you can go all out to perform at your best. But we’re going to do it differently from the rest because life’s too short to be normal. So we’ll put a hamburger on your trunks or an elephant’s trunk on your junk, because that’s what makes us Funky Trunks.
In October 2002 the first pair of Funky Trunks were launched unceremoniously at a suburban Melbourne pool by national swimmer Duncan McLean to a chorus of laughter and cheers from the squad. Pink flowery trunks were unheard of in an era where Daddy Speed-O had ingrained the necessity for males to exercise only navy, black or red. It was hardly the springboard for a budding swimwear label but as the jokes died, the Australian male inclined to swim laps began to question the appeal of exercising in tight briefs. It soon became a question that reverberated around the swimming pools of Australia as Funky Trunks was adopted by state, national and Olympic swimmers to put comfort and style back into swimming.
Although we messed around for a while, it was clear from the start that swimmers needed a product that not only looked great but would survive months and years without losing its shape. The old days of stretching your lycra sluggos down to the back of your knees were well and truly done. So we constructed C-Infinity, a premium Italian polyester fabric exclusive to Funky Trunks that prevents colours from fading and our swimwear from losing its shape, even after hours in chlorinated water or under the sun.
Now years down the track, we’ve churned out close to 1,000 prints and added kickboards, pull buoys, goggles, swim caps, mesh bags, backpacks and towels to the Funky Trunks swim range so that every time you hit the water, we’ve got you covered.

Strokemakers have been made in Arizona, USA since their creation from all USA sourced materials.
Walter Schlueter, founder of ASCA, Hall of Fame inductee for technique, ASCA level 5 coach, and Ousley Award winner, was the original designer of the concept for Strokemakers way back in the 1960s while coaching the Arizona Desert Rats. His wife, Nancy Schlueter, US National Champion, Ousley Award winner, and ASCA level 5 coach, patented Strokemakers in the 1980s. They have coached dozens of Olympians and US National Champions and are well known for their stroke technique training.
Strokemakers are designed to improve technique first and foremost and to use both a wrist and finger tube. Strokemakers are also great for Synchronized swimmers, water aerobics and rehabilitation exercises as they increase strength and sculling skills.
